Humboldt Cancels Men’s Soccer Season Over Hazing

HUMBOLDT, Calif. — Humboldt State University has cancelled its 2012-13 men’s soccer season and begun disciplinary proceedings against a number of players who were found to have violated student-athlete codes of conduct at a party that involved hazing and underage drinking.

At the party held off-campus on Aug. 4, there were multiple instances of hazing meant to humiliate and degrade certain players, Humboldt State Now reports. There was also a highly dangerous level of alcohol use and underage drinking. Because of this, the team will not participate in any California Collegiate Athletic Association games or any University-sanctioned games for the entire academic year.

The university has also begun an investigation into a recent allegation of hazing by members of the women’s soccer team.
