UCSB Team Shut Down Following Hazing Allegations

Posted on Tuesday, February 19, 2013 6:53pm

UC Santa Barbara’s student newspaper is reporting that the UCSB Waterski and Wakeboard Team has been suspended, over hazing allegations.

The Daily Nexus is reporting an October, 2011 incident in which a student was injured sparked the suspension.

Past team members told the newspaper that there was drinking involved that weekend, which was a violation of policy for a university related event.

Team officials agreed to a two year suspension, but say they were notified last month it would be a four year penalty.

They say it means all of the current team members will have graduated, and could in effect mean its end, with no one left to reorganize it.
