Ohio University's men's club soccer team is not allowed to play anymore games while University Judiciaries investigates allegations of hazing.

According to a letter sent to the club by Director of Intramural and Club Sports Nick Brigati, the team has lost all practice and game privileges until University Judiciaries makes a ruling in the case.

Brigati says a report from an O.U. resident assistant says that a team member was admitted to O'Bleness Memorial Hospital on September 9 to be treated for a head injury.

The injury was an inch and a half laceration on the back of the head.

The team member said he was pressured by other members of the soccer team to drink alcohol.

Brigati says hazing violates the O.U. Student Code of Conduct.

He also says that if the team violates the suspension, the men's soccer team will be immediately expelled from club sports.
