High school basketball player arrested after opponent was knocked down with a punch in the handshake line

CARLISLE, Iowa – A Carlisle High School basketball player is facing felony charges after a violent incident at the end of Tuesday’s Carlisle-Nevada game was caught on video.

The Carlisle Police Department identified their suspect as 17-year-old Carter Prenosil, a senior on Carlisle’s basketball team.

Police believe Prenosil knocked out a Nevada player with a punch to the head as the two teams lined up to shake hands after the game. Prenosil now faces one count of intentionally causing bodily harm to the incident.

According to the criminal complaint, the Nevada player suffered a severe concussion and a cut on his lip that required four stitches.

In a statement, Nevada Superintendent Steve Gray called the incident “a very unfortunate and disturbing situation.” He said the injured Nevada athlete is expected to recover.

Carlisle Superintendent Bryce Amos expressed disappointment over the fight in his statement.

Amos said, in part:

Without a doubt, an unfortunate incident that does not represent the school culture that exists in Carlisle… this kind of behavior is not tolerated in the Carlisle Community School District.

In addition to the fight between Carlisle and Nevada, the handshake of a basketball game between East Union and Diagonal also ended in a change that was captured on camera.

The Iowa High School Athletes Association addressed both incidents in a statement:

It is clear to us that we are disappointed to see so many instances of violent behavior taking place on the opening nights of the 2021-22 basketball season. Violent behavior has no place in Iowa high school activities. IHSAA administrators are working with relevant schools to ensure appropriate guidelines are followed for student-athlete violence and appropriate action is taken at the local level. .
