Authorities are investigating an NCAA-style bracket that rated girls at a high school in New York.

The Twitter account @SHSBracketology selected four students from each grade at Shaker High in Albany and asked classmates to rank them by their looks, according to ABC News.

"May the best girl win," the account wrote.

Within 24 hours, the account had been deactivated. But not before upsetting those it included.

"It didn't make me feel good. I would be walking down the halls and there were these groups of guys clapping at me," student Kara Crodelle told ABC. "I thought they were better than this. I was embarrassed."

When those responsible are identified, they will face disciplinary actions, school officials told Albany TV station WXXA.
