Brawl Breaks Out During High School Track Meet [VIDEO]

Fights break out between high school athletes a lot, but you don’t see a fight break out on the track meet often. Especially while the race is going on.

At this past weekend’s Hispanic Games, a brawl broke out between a pair of New York high school 4×400-meter relay squads midway through the third heat.

Mt. Vernon (N.Y.) High sophomore Rai Benjamin and an unidentified Thomas Jefferson (Brooklyn, N.Y.) High athlete collided, and when Benjamin attempted to rejoin the race, he was taken down by another TJHS runner, according to a Journal News report. A fight resulted between the two teams, including athletes not yet competing.

The two teams were initially suspended indefinitely from future competition at New York City’s Armory, where many major prep track competitions are held throughout the winter, but Mt. Vernon has since been reinstated after a one-meet suspension, according to the report. The fate of the Thomas Jefferson team has not yet been determined.

I don’t know how often track fights happen, but I have never seen one before. I would think you would finish the race and then fight. Don’t want to mess up those lap times.
