WARWICK – In the wake of Friday night’s shooting of three Newburgh residents immediately after a high school football game between Warwick and Newburgh Free Academy, Warwick school officials said on Saturday that they “will not be taking part in any sports or extracurricular activities in Newburgh” until further notice.

The Warwick district officials said their football and cheerleading teams arrived home safely.

“The evening’s events were certainly alarming,” officials said.

The Warwick district “is prepared to support students and families during this time. Kindly notify your child’s principal via email if we can be of any assistance.”
