The Cal Poly rugby club missed only one game due to its activities suspension.
Mustang News Staff Report
The Cal Poly rugby club’s team-wide activities suspension on has been lifted, university spokesperson Matt Lazier said.
The suspension was originally made after Cal Poly administrators received a report that at least one rugby player had assaulted someone off campus this past week.
The Dean of Students office decided the actions of a few were not cause to suspend the entire team.
“The Dean of Students office tells me that as they have investigated the matter, they’ve determined that the issue is not a team-wide matter but rather something that appears to have involved four to five individual players only,” Lazier said in an email to Mustang News. “Therefore, they have lifted the team-wide suspension.”
However, those four or five members accused of assault will remain suspended from all team activities until the investigation has ended. The Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities is working with the San Luis Obispo Police Department on the investigation.
The team missed one game last week due to the suspension. The Mustangs were set to play UC Santa Cruz.
