State BOE Overturns Suspensions of Two Easton HS Lacrosse Players

EASTON, MD – Last spring two Easton High School lacrosse players, Graham Dennis and Casey Edsall, were suspended from school because a pen knife and a cigarette lighter were found in their lacrosse bags.  Tuesday, the Maryland State Board of Education overturned the ruling of the Talbot County BOE and ordered the local board to expunge the records of the two young men.

The knives and lighter were used to maintain and repair the players’ lacrosse equipment.  Despite this reason, Dennis was suspended from school for 10 days and Edsall was suspended for one day.  In addition, Dennis was arrested and charged with carrying a concealed weapon.  The Talbot County State’s Attorney later dropped the charges.
