‘Unsubstantiated rumors’ shut down San Marcos High School pep rally


With campus still buzzing about Thursday’s big fight, San Marcos High School administrators cancelled an afternoon pep rally and asked for beefed-up police presence on Friday.

Six male students were involved in a fight on Thursday, Sept. 24 during a lunchtime incident that drew a large audience but did not involve weapons.

The campus was put on lockdown while the fight was investigated by administrators and by San Marcos police detailed to the school district as resource officers, according to a recorded audio notification sent to parents this afternoon.

None of the six students involved in the fight were on campus Friday, but the recorded message did not say if they had been suspended, arrested or were absent of their volition. Nevertheless, “unsubstantiated rumors” foretold of another fight during a scheduled pep rally for tonight’s home game against San Antonio Memorial High School.

Principal Kelli Lopez cancelled the pep rally out of precaution although San Marcos police found “no evident of any credible threats or presence of weapons.”
