Women's lacrosse coach fired over hazing complaint at Pa.college

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

Franklin & Marshall College has suspended part of its women's lacrosse team and fired its national championship-winning coach over a hazing complaint.

The school said Tuesday that it had dismissed coach Lauren Paul and kicked several players off the team after confirming the hazing took place last year.

Vice President of Communications Cass Cliatt told The Associated Press the school will not release details about the dismissed players, but the Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era reports 11 players are no longer listed on the roster, including eight of nine seniors.

Cliatt would not release details about the hazing, citing student privacy. The suspended players remain enrolled as students.

Paul guided the team to the NCAA Division III national championship in 2009. A phone listing for her could not be located.
