Wednesday night, the organization in charge of monitoring high school sports says nobody ever complained about an alleged biting incident on the Western Albemarle High School soccer field before parents involved police.
Fluvanna County High School soccer player Katrina Ditta, 18, is charged with misdemeanor assault and battery. A Western Albemarle player accuses Ditta of biting her during a district tournament game on May 23.
The Virginia High School League (VHSL) says referees only call what they see, but no one reported witnessing this incident to the league.
"We don't have any report of any allegation of what may have occurred in any game in this situation, so it's basically between any schools involved," said VHSL Deputy Director Tom Zimorzki. "And, obviously, if an individual wishes to bring charges against another individual, that's outside the realm of our authority."
Ditta's parents and attorney say a videotape of the game proves her innocence. She's scheduled for a July 16 trial in Albemarle County.
