SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (AP) - Administrators are investigating claims that students were subjected to racist taunts during a high school football game in Southern California.

The Orange County Register reports players and cheerleaders with Lincoln High of San Diego say they were the targets of racial slurs by students and adult fans at San Clemente High Friday night.

The San Diego branch of the NAACP sent a letter to officials with San Clemente High and Capistrano Unified School District requesting action be taken.

The letter says Lincoln students were subjected to the abuse while on the field and in the locker room.

Capistrano Unified says it’s investigating. San Clemente Principal Chris Carter sent a letter to parents saying he takes the allegations seriously and condemns any hateful rhetoric.
