One of the more more enjoyable things for high school athletes is the bus ride on the way back from an away game after a hard-fought win. Between discussing stats and yo-momma jokes, the bus ride is a great time to just kick back and relax. However, for one Missouri high school football team, their ride back was anything but relaxing.
Maxpreps.com has the details:
A bus carrying a Missouri high school football team was struck by five gunshots after its game last Friday night, according to the Kansas City Star.
The bus was carrying students from Southwest Early College (Kansas City, Mo.)traveling back from a game against Afrikan Centered (Kansas City, Mo.). The field on which the game was played is shared by several Kansas City high schools, and was a homecoming game for Southwest, which won, 44-14.
According to the report, the bus passed a group of 20 to 30 people near the field when as many as eight shots rang out, five of which struck the bus.
Luckily, no students or coaches were injured though the bus suffered broken windows and and damaged ceiling. As for the students of Southwest Early College, they can rest easy knowing that they’re all safe and use this “experience” as part of their homecoming weekend.
