New Mexico high school warned on rowdy basketball fans

February 6, 2019 GMT

ESTANCIA, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico high school has been warned: Keep your rowdy fans in check or no one will be allowed into the stands at basketball games.

KRQE-TV in Albuquerque reports the New Mexico Activities Association sent a letter last week to Estancia High School Athletic Director Stewart Burnett and put the central New Mexico school on notice.

Officials told Burnett that if there are any more official reports of bad behavior at boys’ or girls’ basketball games, all fans could be barred from attending games for the rest of the season.

The governing body for state high school sports says too many Estancia High School parents and fans have been behaving badly at games.

Burnett says the disorderly fans are a “very small representation” of the fan base.
