During the Playoff Game last week, 11/9/2023, between the Hawley Bearcats and the Anthony Wildcats that was played in Wink, Texas, a conversation was picked up on a “hot mic”. The conversation involved some racist comments towards the Anthony High School Players. This incident was brought to the attention of the Hawley Superintendent and was addressed immediately and is a school district issue. However, the City of Hawley wishes to express extreme disappointment and disapproval of the comments made and assure others that this does not reflect who Hawley is. Hawley is very proud of its school district and what they have come to represent and strongly believe that this is an extremely isolated incident. We applaud Superintendent McBrayer for her quick handling of the incident. We have always been very proud of the conduct of our students, players and staff and have seen numerous comments and correspondence from other schools concerning the sportsmanship and Christian attitude they continuously exhibit. Hawley strongly feels that this in no way represents the true values of not only the town, but the school district and stand behind the district’s prompt handling of this offensive event. Hawley also wishes to extend it’s apologies and deepest regret to Anthony, their students, Wink and it’s students, and the other students that face this type of racism. This conduct has no place in schools or communities and we should all keep working together to put a stop to racism in any form and any venue.
