NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. -- Five students have been disciplined and the wrestling season left uncertain following an investigation into hazing at Fernandina Beach high School.

The investigation is over.

Officials found that upperclassmen on the wrestling team were paddling freshmen on the team, Sharyl Wood, executive director of administrative services for the Nassau County School Board, confirmed today.

Wood did not give details on their punishments, grade or level of involvement. No one was expelled, she said.

All the team's coaches were suspended from their duties as coaches, including the head coach and at least one assistant, said Wood.

She said no one would be able to wrestle this season unless a replacement coach could be found.

"The future of the wrestling team is in jeopardy," said Wood.

It is unclear at this point whether there will be wrestling season.

As far as further updates, Wood says they will have to determine soon whether or not there will be a season.
