LOWELL, Mass. — Trash talk is nothing new in sports but a recent incident between two Massachusetts hockey teams has parents concerned and angry.
The names of players and families of the Lowell Catholic High School hockey team appeared on snap chat on a so-called ‘chirping scouting report’ allegedly compiled by one or more players from Tewksbury High School.
“I have never seen or heard anything like this since my son has been on the ice since he was 5 years old,” said Jennifer, a mother of a senior player at Lowell Catholic. “The only thing they had said about our son was that he was, gay.”
Jennifer was not the only concerned parent who reached out to Boston 25 News about the incident.
“My son was one player called out on the report and they called him fat,” said Mary, a mother of a Lowell Catholic player. “My concern was talking about a player’s sister doing an act with her boyfriend who plays on the team.”
The so-called chirping report also spoke about whose parents are divorced even naming the player’s siblings and parents.
“In a perfect world, I would very much like Tewksbury to be removed from the MIAA tournament for the season,” said Jennifer.
Tewksbury Superintendent Brenda Regan said “this is a serious and concerning matter” and they are currently investigating.
Boston 25 reached out to Lowell Catholic and the MIAA for a response but have not yet heard back.
