Officials at a suburban school district are apologizing for some students who allegedly used racial slurs against members of another high school team.

Rashad and Sharad Crosby are the only two African-American players on the Naperville North freshman lacrosse team. They say they were on the receiving end of the slurs on Friday, just before a game against Wheaton Warrenville South High School.

The boys' mother brought the incident to the attention of Wheaton Warrenville School District 200. Her sons say they are still hurt by the slur.

Officials for Wheaton Warrenville School District 200 apologized to the boys' mother and launched an investigation into the incident.
