During the trip, a coach received reports of incidents that went against student values, which prompted the school to open an internal investigation. On Tuesday, the school requested assistance from the sheriff regarding a harassment investigation.

Multiple Shawnee baseball games were cancelled due to the investigation. Superintendent Gregg Morris and local school leaders are now trying to decide if and when the team might be able to take the field again.
