The women’s soccer team at Carleton University will only suffer a two-game suspension for a party that resulted in one player being hospitalized for excessive alcohol consumption. The hazing party allegedly took place over a week ago, on Sept. 13. The team missed games against U of T and Ryerson last weekend.
“The university has concluded that the two-game suspension by the team was an appropriate penalty and the team will resume regular play this Wednesday against the University of Ottawa,” reads a press release from the Carleton administration.
Carleton suspended the whole team, rather than individuals, to send a stern warning that they will not tolerate hazing. Admin said that all other disciplinary measures would be handled internally.
Before the suspension, the women’s soccer team had a record of 2-2-1.
