More details are out about that hazing incident that led to suspensions for the Cornell University lacrosse team.
At one gathering, university officials say underage freshmen were told to stand in a circle and were tied together with string by their belt loops. Upperclassmen on the team organized the keg race, and challenged freshmen to drink a large amount of beer in a competition against other team members.
“They consumed a large quantity of alcohol to the point at which multiple members vomited,” according to the information released by the university.
On other occasions, university officials say freshmen were expected to perform menial tasks, such as chores and other duties that went above and beyond expectations of general membership.
The team was placed on temporary suspension for less than a week, and has had all of its scheduled exhibition games this fall cancelled.
Team members will have to participate in anti-hazing education programs and workshops.
