Probe involving Camden baseball team continues

CAMDEN — A school investigation continues at Camden Central School over a "student disciplinary matter" involving members of the varsity baseball team.

Superintendant Dr. Jeffrey K. Bryant, who earlier said he hoped the school’s investigation would be concluded on Friday, said a decision regarding what will happen in regards to the rest of the team’s season is still to be determined.

"The investigation is continuing," he said in an email. "No decision has been made regarding the remainder of the varsity baseball season. Once the investigation is complete, the key stakeholders will meet to decide the next steps."

Bryant would not discuss specifics involving the investigation, citing student privacy issues.

As a result of the school’s investigation, the Blue Devils’ games last week at New Hartford on Thursday and at Oneida on Friday were postponed. Bryant said today that a decision has not been made regarding Camden’s next game on the road at Whitesboro scheduled for 4:15 p.m. on Tuesday.

"I hope the investigation will conclude today and conversations can begin regarding the remainder of the varsity baseball season," said Bryant in an email.

Including the two games postponed last week, Camden still has 11 contests remaining on its schedule, 10 of them Tri-Valley League contests. The remaining schedule includes a TVL matchup against visiting Holland Patent on Thursday and another league game at Vernon-Verona-Sherrill next Monday.
