In a statement released Wednesday, Fairfield Prep responded to its basketball team’s one-year probation, which was handed down by the CIAC on Tuesday.
Fairfield Prep is deeply affected by the negative press concerning events associated with the state championship basketball game. We have investigated and are addressing the show of unsportsmanlike conduct. Where warranted, we have taken appropriate action with regard to behavior that we consider contrary to our values. We take any criticism seriously and see it as an opportunity for self-reflection and improvement.
Moving forward, Fairfield Prep is committed to full compliance with this action by CIAC, and will continue to take steps to ensure that all aspects of our interscholastic sports programs reflect our overall values and mission as a Jesuit, Catholic school of excellence.
