TEMPE â€“ Arizona State University officials have put an end to the school’s menâ€™s lacrosse season.
Lacrosse Magazine reports the suspension is the result of a hazing incident a few weeks ago. It was reportedly a party off campus where there was a lot of underage drinking going on.
3TV reached out to a number of people associated with the lacrosse team but so far no one is commenting.
The team’s coach is quoted in Lacrosse Magazine saying, â€œHe was stunned by the school’s decision to suspend his 34-man team.â€
The magazine also quotes Coach Chris Malone saying, “The players understand they did something wrong. They made a mistake but I’m not sure if the punishment fits this situation.”
The team cannot play and cannot practice until August. Then they will be on a two-year-probation period. It has been a club sport at ASU for 40 years and last season was their best ever.
