The cheerleading team at Wharton High School is sidelined for putting condoms into ‘spirit bags’ meant for the varsity football team.


The spirit bags were given to players prior to homecoming last week.


 The cheerleaders were punished with a one-day, in-school suspension – and they were suspended from this week’s game for the stunt.


In a statement the district said the punishment was to teach students proper behavior and not meant to be overly harsh.
