Confirmed: Lansing Catholic will bench players for kneeling

WLNS – Lansing Catholic high school athletes who kneel during the national anthem won’t play.

That’s what the school is telling parents in a letter detailing their new policies.

Officials say they support social justice but are not changing their stance that athletes should stand for the anthem.

The school says athletes who plan in advance to kneel will not dress or be with the team for the game.
