According to officials from the Clear Creek Independent School District, the coaches got into an argument that ended in a physical altercation. CCISD officials confirm that trainer Reggie Rice has been placed on administrative leave and the other trainer, who is not named at this time, is at home recovering from the fight.
CCISD confirmed it was investigating the situation and said no police report or charges had been filed as of Wednesday.
Clear Lake High School Principal David Drake sent a note to parents Wednesday about the incident:
“At Clear Lake High School, we strive to exemplify the behavior and core values that we expect from our students every day. It is with this in mind that I am writing to you (Wednesday). After baseball practice (Tuesday), two Clear Lake high school employees got into an argument that escalated into a physical altercation. The matter is being investigated at this hour and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken. Both employees are currently not at work. We are not aware of any students witnessing the incident. However, some parents of athletes were present. Please accept our apologies to those in attendance as this is not how we handle disagreements at Clear Lake High School.
CCISD officials say they have never had an incident of coach fights that they are aware of.
It is not yet clear why the dispute started.
