PLYMOUTH -- They were listed as the visiting team, but Campbellsport High School's boys basketball team may have felt at home. The team traveled to Plymouth High School Tuesday, and Plymouth fans there were encouraged to wear Campbellsport's blue and gold colors. The gesture comes on the heels of a weekend car crash that killed three Campbellsport students, and injured six others.
Deputies say the driver was going well over the 55 mile-per-hour speed limit, lost control, and flipped the vehicle with some inside not wearing seat belts. Three were killed and six others were injured.
The brother of one of the teens who died -- Caitlin Scannell -- spoke to FOX6's Jeremy Ross Tuesday night. "I'm still in shock, but this is our new reality, and we'll get through it," Ryan Scannell said.
Ryan has set up a memorial scholarship fund in an effort to continue Caitlin's spirit of giving, and help others go to college. The first contribution was money Ryan saved to help Caitlin pay for college. "She was second academically in her class. I put in $10,000, and I'd like the community to match or exceed that," Ryan said.
Funds from raffle sales and concession sales at Tuesday night's basketball game went to the Campbellsport victims' families as a showcase of sportsmanship and solidarity.
Deputies say the results of their investigation into the crash will be handed over to the district attorney as early as the end of this week. They are not recommending charges against the driver - leaving that up to the district attorney.
Donations to the Caitlin Scannel Memorial Scholarship Fund can be made at: National Exchange Bank & Trust at 114 North Fond Du Lac Avenue Campbellsport, WI 53010-0840. Their number is listed as (920) 533-8386.
