New Castle County school officials say a coach and three basketball players have been suspended after a fight. Junior varsity head coach Mike Nalls is also an assistant coach with the varsity team. But district spokeswoman Kathy Demarest says he does not work at Delcastle High.

Delcastle High athletes got into a fight with William Penn players at the end of Friday's game between the two teams. Several fans also stepped onto the court and got involved in the fight.

One player who took a swing was suspended for five days. A Delcastle student who joined the fight has been suspended for five days. Two players who left the bench during the fight were also suspended for one game.

School officials are investigating to determine what Nalls' role was.
