Seattle-area high school cedes title to rival in wake of shooting

Saturday October 25th, 2014

Oak Harbor High School in Seattle, Wash., announced that it will cede the Wesco 3A North division football title to rival Marysville-Pilchuck in the wake of a fatal shooting at the latter school, the Seattle Times reported on Friday evening.

The game was planned for Friday night in Oak Harbor, but was postponed after a Marysville-Pilchuck freshman shot and killed one student and wounded four more before taking his own life on Friday morning.

Oak Harbor agreed to take second place.

The shooter, identified by the Times as Jaylen Fryberg, was a member of the school's freshman football team.
