St. Louis Park, Robbinsdale districts say they won't play New Prague after players faced racist taunts

The incidents occurred during recent boys' hockey and girls' basketball games


February 24, 2022

St. Louis Park and Robbinsdale school district officials said their teams won't play New Prague in athletic contests after their players faced racist taunts in recent games.

"I will not tolerate or allow our students to further experience any racism while participating in athletics against New Prague High School," St. Louis Park Athletic Director Andrew Ewald wrote in a letter to Brad Skogerboe, his counterpart at New Prague.

Ewald said the decision to suspend contests against New Prague came after consulting several St. Louis Park "stakeholders and leaders, most importantly our students." St. Louis Park officials will also remove the New Prague banner hanging in the high school gymnasium.
