Six students were expelled from a high school cheerleading team after allegedly shoving a girl into a pool with her clothes on.

Anthony Newbold, director of Centennial High School in Georgia, said the girls were ripped off after "several acts of hazing … of varying degrees."

While he did not describe those acts in a letter to parents, student Bradley Scomma claimed that the cheerleaders had pushed a freshman into a group.

Scomma told WSB-TV Atlanta that he knows the girls who were involved.

He said: I do not think they should have been expelled. They were initiating a freshman on the varsity team and they pushed a girl into a puddle with her clothes on. "

Newbold said that the hazing occurred off-campus during an event that was not sanctioned by the school or organized as part of the mood program.

However, it was designed by and for the cheerleaders as part of the university events.

"Rookies or intolerant people of any kind are not tolerated by Centennial High School or Fulton County Athletics, even when they are marked as" initiation "as a team," Newbold wrote.

Principal Anthony Newbold said he does not think the girls acted with malice, but "the intent is irrelevant to the hazing" (archive image, Mail Online does not suggest that any of these students were involved in the incident)

"I do not think these athletes have acted with the intention of damaging, but the intention is irrelevant with the hazing."

The girls have been removed from the team but have not been suspended from school, reports the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Local police said they had not received a report on the incident.

AJC spoke with the school and confirmed that six students had been disciplined.

While Scomma defended her friends, another student who wished to remain anonymous said that the girl had been "correctly" & # 39; expelled.

The students said that the girls had been pushing the freshmen in the group "for years" as part of the initiation.
