Two Easton High School lacrosse players should not have been suspended or arrested for having a penknife and lighter in their lacrosse bags, according to the Maryland state school board, which ordered that the boys' records be wiped clean. In a legal opinion released Tuesday, the state school board said Talbot County school officials had failed to use "appropriate discretion" in disciplining the two lacrosse players, who said they carried the items to repair their lacrosse sticks. "I feel like a big weight is lifted off my shoulders," said Graham Dennis, 18, who a year ago was arrested as a juvenile, charged with possession of a deadly weapon, and suspended from school for 10 days.

Varsity athlete Graham Dennis never thought of the pen knife he carried in his bag to repair his lacrosse stick's strings as a dangerous weapon. It was a tool of the sport, he believed, until Easton High School officials found the item in a search of bags on a school bus headed for a game. Dennis and teammate Casey Edsall, who had a lighter that he also used to repair equipment, were sent to the principal's office and the police were called. Dennis was hauled off in handcuffs to be fingerprinted and charged as a juvenile with possession of a deadly weapon.

The coaches at Easton High School have apparently seen lacrosse players Casey Edsall and Graham Dennis with the lighter and pocket knife that landed the two with suspensions ("A penknife, a lighter — and 2 suspensions," May 10). If anyone should be in trouble, it is the school board for not properly training its employees to be on the lookout for such items and to take appropriate action. If the coaches thought nothing of it, the other students thought nothing of it, and the parents thought nothing of it, the school board should think nothing of it. Anne Cerutti, Chester
