HARTFORD  — School officials said a group of students directed racial taunts toward the opposing team at a girls soccer playoff game.

The Hartford Courant reports that officials at Windsor High School launched an investigation after a parent complained of St. Joseph High School fans singing the Toto song “Africa” at their players Nov. 7. Half of the Windsor players are students of color.

Windsor Superintendent Craig Cooke said he confirmed the taunts after a series of interviews with students. He said he issued a complaint to officials with the state Interscholastic Athletic Conference.

Conference director Karissa Niehoff said she has not seen the complaint yet. But she says the school could be fined or prohibited from competing if found in violation.
