Ninth grade girls swim team members hire stripper as a joke; school unamused

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – A Des Moines school district spokesman has confirmed that ninth-grade girls hired a male stripper to perform at their school’s synchronized swimming club’s annual banquet.

District spokesman Phil Roeder (RAY’-dur) told The Des Moines Register ( ) on Wednesday that the Roosevelt High School principal will decide whether the girls violated school policies and punishment is merited.

A father of one of the team members says the girls employed the stripper as a joke, and that the stripper didn’t totally disrobe at Friday evening’s event at the Des Moines Social Club.

Roeder says a club employee asked the stripper to leave, deeming the appearance inappropriate for the students.

The Sharks synchronized swimming club is run and funded by students in grades nine through 12.
