BENTON HARBOR — A longstanding high school rivalry turned ugly when fans from Battle Creek Central allegedly attacked Benton Harbor High School cheerleaders as they tried to get on their bus after last Tuesday’s boys basketball game in Battle Creek.

That’s what Benton Harbor’s head cheerleading coach Ronnella Booker said Saturday during the 2020 Meeting of the Minds and Day of Action meeting, sponsored by the city’s Racial Equality Committee.
