Quinnipiac men’s lacrosse suspended pending investigation

One year after going undefeated in conference play (6-0) and winning the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) regular season championship, the Quinnipiac men’s lacrosse team is facing serious discipline.

Quinnipiac University suspended the team amid an investigation revealing an alleged breach in the student conduct policy.

“The university has suspended the men’s lacrosse team pending the outcome of an investigation into alleged violations of the student conduct policy,” Lynn Bushnell, vice president for public affairs told Inside Lacrosse on Sunday morning. “This suspension, which takes effect immediately, prohibits all team activity, including practicing and representing the university in competitions. With the well-being of our students being our top priority, the university has zero tolerance for any behavior that endangers any member of the university community.”

All players have been suspended. The coaching staff has not been suspended. Head Coach Eric Fekete, the defending MAAC coach of the year, is entering his 18th season at the helm in Hamden. 

It is not known what caused the suspension at this time.

There is a scrimmage that is scheduled between the Bobcats and the Sacred Heart Pioneers for Oct. 5,  but it is unclear if this will still take place.
