Scorecard: Male athletes at Piedmont High School created a 'Fantasy Slut League' in which they would accumulate points for sexual exploits with females drafted into the league.

Piedmont High School administrators and parents are wrestling with how to respond to news that some male high school athletes created a statistics-based fantasy league that awarded points when girls the boys “drafted” were rumored to have engaged in sexual activity.

Varsity athletes used the online competition, modeled after fantasy leagues common in major league sports, as a bonding activity for the past five or six years, Principal Rich Kitchens said in a letter and email notifying parents of the league’s existence Friday.

“Male students earn points for documented engagement in sexual activities with female students,” he wrote.

Most of the female students who were drafted into the league weren’t aware of the competition, he added.

Officials at the school learned about the game during an assembly on date rape earlier this month. Administrators interviewed students, parents and staff members, but weren’t able to identify any participants in the competition, which students referred to as a “Fantasy Slut League,” Kitchens said.

Neither Kitchens nor Piedmont Unified School District Superintendent Constance Hubbard responded to calls seeking details about how the league worked and whether administrators plan to continue trying to pinpoint who was involved.

“The revelation that students expressed concern that the fallout could result in discipline and affect their college applications suggests an understanding by students that there is something wrong” with the league, Kitchens said in his email to parents.

Kitchen also told parents that the teacher who organized the date rape assembly would collect personal stories from students with an eye toward developing another schoolwide meeting on the “personal integrity” issues the league’s disclosure raised.
