High schools involved in 2nd sports-related racial incident in 2 years

A high school superintendent in Glendale, Wisconsin called for a rival school to take action after one of Nicolet High School’s athletes was subjected to racist treatment during a game against Port Washington High School for the second time in two years.

The latest incident occurred Monday during a junior varsity baseball game at Port Washington, Wisconsin. A Port Washington player reached first base and in chatting with the Nicolet first baseman used the N-word in noting the Knights’ team. Caden Ellis, a freshman second baseman who is biracial, saw the exchange according to his father, KaJuan.

The last time Port Washington was involved in a racially charged incident, it was with Nicolet and it made national news. In February 2019, dozens of Port Washington students at a boys basketball game held up a photocopied image of former Nicolet standout Jalen Johnson that made it appear he was wearing blackface.
