The Walbrook High School community, saddened by the sudden death of basketball player Rodney Beasley in a weekend automobile accident, does not plan to postpone any athletic events.
"We want to keep from disrupting the routine as much as possible," said Walbrook principal Samuel Billups.
A city public school crisis team spent yesterday at Walbrook, helping students cope with the shock.
Walbrook was scheduled to visit Lake Clifton today for a lacrosse game and Carver tomorrow for a baseball game.
Beasley played in the East-West All-Star underclass basketball game last Saturday at Morgan State University. Later that night, Beasley was riding in a car driven by Kristal Preston, sister of Dunbar guard Michael Lloyd. Lloyd and Walbrook players Carl Williams and Joe Wilson also were passengers in the car headed south on Aisquith street. According to police reports, when Preston attempted to stop for a traffic signal, the car skidded into a pole supporting the traffic light.
