Eight UMass lacrosse players suspended indefinitely

Sunday, February 3, 2008

The Baltimore Sun, Inside Lacrosse Magazine and LaxPower are all reporting the indefinite suspension of eight lacrosse players following a violation of team rules during an off-campus incident early Friday morning.

Here's the roster:

Freshman Chris Casey (Duxbury, Mass.), junior Jim Connolly (North Andover, Mass.), sophomore Chris Haggerty (West Nyack, N.Y.), redshirt sophomore Jordan Hendry (Englewood, Colo.), junior Justin Kelleher (Brewster, N.Y.), freshman Jay Lucas (Bedford Hills, N.Y.), freshman Ryan Marcus (South Hadley, Mass.), and freshman Alex Whitney (North Hampton, N.H.) have been suspended from the team.

Anyone know what happened?

Who was involved?

Is someone keeping a lid on this?

So far the Sports Information Director at the Athletics Department has refrained from commenting on the nature of the suspension. We'll keep you updated as the story unfolds.
Any other students commenting on any of this?
