Franklin-Regional lacrosse players cause $500 damage at Easton Hotel, disciplined
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.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
