According to the arrest affidavits, the incident happened on Sept. 21 when Caldwell High School was returning home from a game.
A 14-year-old girl told the Milam County Sheriff’s Office that one of her teammates acted as the “lookout” while another girl held her down and two others removed her clothes.
Katherine Hart, 18, Marina Brinkman, 17, Sophie Goodman, 17, and Kadie Hartman, 17, are charged with indecency with a child by exposure, KTRK-TV in Houston reported.

After the team arrived back in Caldwell, the 14-year-old’s sister picked her up.
