The schools are both part of the Lewisville Independent School District, which release a statement Saturday saying:
The latest news from around North Texas.
The actions of both the student athletes and adults involved in the altercation are clearly unacceptable and do not meet the expectations we have for how our athletes or fans conduct themselves. Both district and police officials are investigating the situation to determine the appropriate course of action from here, including disciplinary and possible legal consequences for those involved.
