Several team members allegedly misbehaved at recent party
The National Collegiate Athletics Association is working with the Humboldt State University office of Student Affairs in the launch of an official investigation ito the men’s soccer team at HSU.
According to HSU spokesman Paul Mann, the investigation is cenerted around a party which took place this summer where many HSU soccer players were allegedly involved in hazing and other misdeeds.
“University officials stress that they take these issues very seriously,” Mann stated in a release. “Hazing is both illegal and violates the student code of conduct. Student-athletes receive education on hazing, and are frequently reminded that it is not tolerated.”
Disciplinary action decisions are pending, although HSU doesn’t plan to disclose details concerning sanctions on particular players. Consequences could be a mere written warning, or far worse — including expulsion from the entire California State University system.
