CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. Nike Zoom Nz Cheap . -- An investigation launched after a freshman high school player in Tennessee was attacked by three teammates at a holiday basketball tournament has revealed widespread, systemic problems going unaddressed at every level in his countys public schools.The countys district attorney and sheriffs office jointly investigated allegations of hazing and bullying on Ooltewah High Schools basketball team, and found problems on a much wider scale. Their report released Thursday says permissive coaches and an apathetic administration allowed a culture of bullying to spread around the county.The investigation was launched in January, days after Gatlinburg police said three Ooltewah players assaulted a freshman teammate with a pool cue on Dec. 22. In juvenile court last month, one was convicted of aggravated rape and aggravated assault, and the other two were found guilty of aggravated assault.From the moment the basketball coaches drove the team out of town without Board approval, the system failed, the report says.There was failure to adequately supervise the students, failure to recognize the significance of the horrific injuries suffered during a rape, failure to notify the victims parents, failure to provide a swift and appropriate response to the attacks, and failure to assure the public that proactive measures would be taken to address the root causes of these failures.Many of adults referred to in the report are no longer working in the countys schools. Kirk Kelly, the interim superintendent, said in a statement that the board will determine additional steps as we continue to improve our district.We have already made significant changes in our district over the past six months, including new and stricter policies, stronger training for our employees about abuse reporting, and a more comprehensive approach to crisis management and communications, Kelly said. However, the report may provide us an additional opportunity to enhance our practices, provide better support and safety for all students moving forward.While this has been a difficult time for many, I believe we will be better positioned in the future by having taken the right training path, creating greater awareness of appropriate behavior and encouraging the sharing of timely information.According to the report, the teams coach, Andre Montgomery, attempted to grossly minimize the situation and attempted to cover up the crimes. The report says Montgomery told players to keep quiet and not inform their parents.Montgomery was indicted in May on four counts of failing to report child sexual abuse. His lawyer, Curtis Bowe, said Thursday he hadnt seen the report and declined further comment.The report says authorities widened their investigation after fielding complaints about other bullying at Ooltewah and other Hamilton County schools. They found that neither Ooltewah High officials nor central office administrators at Hamilton County acknowledged the seriousness of the Dec. 22 case.And it says there is no indication that Rick Smith, the Hamilton County schools superintendent at the time, took his duty to manage the situation seriously. It says that Smith failed to communicate the gravity of the situation to School Board members or the public.The report says Hamilton County Department of Education has a glaring lack of training on how to handle these types of incidents. And it states that Ooltewah athletes continue to display bullying and threatening behavior.This report comes one month after a separate investigation commissioned by Hamilton County school officials said that Ooltewah had a culture of hazing and bullying even before the Dec. 22 attack.Meanwhile, the victim filed suit on Sept. 9 against his former coach, the former vice principal and athletic director, the former principal and the countys board of education, accusing them of knowingly ignoring the abuse of athletes.The lawsuit alleges that Montgomery told players after the assault, Were a family and what goes on in the family stays in the family. Cheap Nike Zoom Shoes . -- Lou Brocks shoulder-to-shoulder collision with Bill Freehan during the 1968 World Series and Pete Roses bruising hit on Ray Fosse in the 1970 All-Star game could become relics of baseball history, like the dead-ball era. Wholesale Nike Zoom Nz .

He has given up 111 hits in 92 2/3 innings, with 76 strikeouts and 24 walks.The 27-year-old hasnt won since May 30, but he and the team had insisted all season he was healthy. The right-hander was tagged for six runs -- five earned -- and 11 hits over 3 2/3 innings Monday against Miami before the Mets rallied from a 6-0 deficit to win.After missing the 2014 season following Tommy John surgery, Harvey wwent 13-8 with a 2. Nike Zoom Nz Sale. 71 ERA last year in 29 starts covering a career-high 189 1/3 innings.Late in the season, agent Scott Boras said doctors recommended that Harvey be limited to approximately 180 innings in his first year back from reconstructive elbow surgery.

Given a chance to go back out to the mound, Harvey faltered and the Royals rallied to win the championship.Selected seventh overall by the Mets in the 2010 amateur draft out of North Carolina, Harvey blossomed into one of baseballs best pitchers three years later and started the 2013 All-Star Game on his home mound at Citi Field.
