WHARTON, Texas (CBS Houston) – They said they meant it as a joke, but the Wharton High School officials were not laughing after the varsity cheerleaders put condoms into goody bags for the football players.

The school district said it was a violation of the student code of conduct and punished the girls by benching them from Friday night’s game.

They also received one day of in-school suspension.

The condoms were placed in School Spirit bags given to the team before their homecoming game last week.

A junior on the drill team said the cheerleaders didn’t think they were doing anything wrong.

”They just thought it would be funny,,cause they are guys and they are girls…you know…”the student told KHOU.

A parent tells the station the district’s punishment was too harsh.

“If they did that, it was just a joke,” said Teresa Holmes. “They need to go on with that and let children be children.”

In a statement, the district said it disciplined the students to teach them proper behavior.

The cheerleaders will be back on the sidelines next Friday.
