Two students have been punished at a Catholic high school in New York for what they displayed at a sporting event.

FOX News Radio's Dave Anthony reports:

Two seniors suspended for ten days, accused of displaying a Confederate Flag during a European handball event last week:

(Cregan) "The gym teacher on duty, they took about eight feet into the gym, saw it, confiscated the flag and then immediately kicked them out of the gym."

Brother Gary Cregan is Principal at Saint Anthony's High School in Huntington on New York's Long Island and says using symbols designed to inflame discrimination is unacceptable:

(Cregan) "The African American students that night showed heroic restraint. They allowed the adults in the room to regulate matters."

In New York, Dave Anthony, FOX News Radio.
