(most assuredly the wrong Niagara, but hazy just the same)
Niagara University announced today that it will cancel one game and impose other sanctions on the women™s lacrosse team for violation of team and university rules.
Mike Hermann, director of athletics, said the action was taken after officials at the university learned that the women™s lacrosse team conducted an initiation party that included alcohol use and other inappropriate activities.
Hermann said university officials have met with the team and issued several sanctions, including canceling the Saturday Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference game against Fairfield University. Each player must also complete 20 hours of community service this semester and take part in an alcohol and hazing education program for all student-athletes in the fall semester.
Though I’m sure there was plenty of inappropriate activity, the question remains if The Purple Eagles’ lacrosse team can measure up to the vomit and/or urine-consuming capacity of Frostberg State’s field hockey squad.
