(WASHINGTON CO.) - In a split decision, the Washington Community School Board voted in favor of the School Superintendent's recommendation to suspend High School Boys Soccer Coach Quentin Myers indefinitely.

The suspension was the result of a player becoming ill and hospitalized for dehydration following an after-game practice earlier this month.

Coach Myers was immediately suspended.

In a special meeting Thursday, the board heard from three people supporting the coach including, former soccer coach and Quentin Myers' father Kevin Myers. Both said they were concerned with schools lack of protocol when dealing with coaches.

The board voted 5-2 to suspend Myers indefinitely with pay. Board members Peg Stephens and Steve Bouchi voted against the suspension.
