FAIR HAVEN, Vt. (WCAX) - A Vermont superintendent says the culture needs to change. This comes after allegations of sexist comments made during a high school girl’s soccer game.

Slate Valley Unified School District Superintendent Brooke Olsen-Farrell says they watched video and talked with fans who attended the varsity girls soccer game between Fair Haven and Hartford back on October 7. In a letter sent to families, she says they found inappropriate comments were made by some Fair Haven students, including profanity, moaning, and barking.

The students will be facing disciplinary action and she says they are working on a plan to make sure this doesn’t happen again.
