A local girls’ basketball player has apologized for an on-court incident last Saturday that gained national media attention.

In a video released on social media, Bellevue High School senior Casey Santoro appeared to pull down Norwalk senior Olivia Ward by the ponytail and throw her to the floor; which Ward’s family say left her with a concussion.

Santoro served a one-game suspension on Tuesday night; handed down from Bellevue Schools.

Santoro released a statement via Twitter yesterday saying she never intended to hurt anyone and she’ll learn from the incident and become a better person because of it.

Ward’s family says they’ve accepted the apology and have felt bad about all of the negative attention the incident has caused due to social media.
