CAMPBELLSPORT, Wis. (AP) -- The halls are quiet at Campbellsport High School Monday where students are grieving the deaths of three classmates and hoping six others will recover from injuries suffered in a weekend crash.

The nine girls were in an SUV that left a road near the high school early Saturday, crashed into a field and rolled several times. Investigators say some of the girls weren't wearing seat belts.

Principal Kristen Langer says the conditions of the six injured girls at two hospitals have not deteriorated. Langer says the girls were friends who played soccer and volleyball. Some have siblings at the high school. The principal says students are meeting with counselors in the school library where they can watch Facebook videos, see pictures of the girls and leave messages for them in notebooks.
