In Our Opinion: Cheers

(Continued)

Six freshman players reported being blindfolded, tied up and fed large quantities of vodka during a “party” thrown by their upperclasswoman teammates.

One student said she passed out on the lawn and was left there by her teammates. A passerby rescued her.

“The next thing I remember was waking up in the hospital at around 5 a.m. with tubes and IVs coming out of me,” the 18-year-old from Rochester told police, according to the Democrat and Chronicle. “My doctor told me that the BAC was .266 and they were concerned that I wasn’t going to live.”

The college has sent a clear message about hazing, which is that it will carry serious consequences. We hope the message gets through.
