CINCINNATI (AP) — Students at a southwest Ohio high school have had a spring prom after all.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (http://cin.ci/124FmPW ) that some 200 Withrow High School students showed up in formal attire Saturday night at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati. Alumni sponsored the replacement prom after Withrow's principal canceled their prom because of a senior prank.

Withrow alumnus Jay Rodgers says he put up money for facility rental because he didn't think students should miss their last chance for a prom, especially since many weren't part of the prank.

Principal Sharon Johnson had warned students against the prank, a mass in-school water balloon fight. She says it was a painful decision, but she told them of the consequences.

There will be a school breakfast to celebrate graduating seniors.
