The Marysville High School girls basketball program will be under new guidance for an indefinite period of time.
Second-year head coach Brooke Young has been placed on paid leave.
The action, according to Marysville High School athletic director Joey Day, came after the district received information pertaining to an alleged incident.
“We received the information on Wednesday and placed Brooke Young on paid leave yesterday (Thursday),” said Day.
The situation that led to Young’s leave is for, according to Day, “alleged misconduct in professional judgement.
“That is basically all I can say at this time,” Day told the Journal-Tribune this morning. “The school district will be conducting a thorough investigation.”
Young’s status as Lady Monarch head coach will be determined pending the outcome of the investigation, according to Day.
“We want to cover all of our bases,” he said.
The Lady Monarchs will take a 4-8 record into tonight’s game at Hilliard Davidson.
Young guided the team to a 10-13 mark during the 2018-19 campaign.
The Lady Monarch program will be under the direction of junior varsity coach Lauren Devine during the ongoing investigation, said Day.
