A few North Dakota high schoolers are in hot water after a photo surfaced of them wearing Klu Klux Klan-style hoods at a recent playoff hockey game.

The incident took place at the state tournament semifinal game between Davies High School and Red River High School. Red River fans had organized a "white out" for the game, and many students came wearing white.

Red River principal Kristopher Arason said the three students in question put the masks on after Red River scored its first goal, and kept them on for 30 seconds to one minute. During that time, 19-year-old Shane Schuster snapped a photo that has circulated around the Internet.

"After confirming the incident, we notified the administrators at Red River High School, who immediately began their investigation," Mark Rerick, Grand Forks Public Schools athletic director, said in a statement. "To the best of my knowledge, the students have been identified by the Red River administrators, who are continuing their investigation."
