Lunenburg forfeits games following racist act

LUNENBURG — School Superintendent Loxi Jo Calmes announced Monday evening that all remaining games for the Lunenburg High School football team, including the popular Thanksgiving game Nov. 27 against St. Bernard’s High School in Fitchburg, have been forfeited following a racist hate crime targeting a young player.

The Lunenburg team is in the spotlight after racist graffiti was discovered Friday morning spray-painted on the residence of 13-year-old Lunenburg player Isaac A. Phillips, who alleges wrongdoing by teammates.
