Some members of the Franklin Regional High School boys lacrosse team were disciplined for causing damage at an Easton hotel while the team was in the area for two away games, Superintendent Emery D'Arcangelo said on Tuesday.

Neither D'Arcangelo nor Athletic Director Zachary Kessler would comment about the type of damage, the players involved or the discipline.

Attempts to reach lacrosse coach David Alexander for comment were unsuccessful, but D'Arcangelo said Alexander determined the boys' discipline.

The team, which lists 23 players on the roster, was in the Easton area for matches against Easton Area High School and Nazareth Area High School last month when the incident occurred at a Hampton Inn, officials said.

The hotel did not file a police report but told police that the damage estimate was about $500, according to Colonial Regional police Chief Roy Seiple, whose enforcement area includes the hotel.

Joe Yellack, general manager of the Hampton Inn, declined to comment.

D'Arcangelo said the team's booster club paid for the trip and that the players were billed for the damages.

“The students involved issued an apology and paid for the damage,” D'Arcangelo said.
