The Brown University swim team excluded from Ivy League meet

PROVIDENCE, R. I. – the Brown University, says the man swimming and diving team will not participate in this week’s Ivy League Championships as it investigates allegations of hazing.

The university says in a statement dated Tuesday its investigation and the student conduct review process are expected to reach a conclusion “in the coming weeks.” It began looking for the team’s conduct in November after an investigation by The Brown Daily Herald student newspaper found the team members in a night of drinking and vandalism on Oct. 7.

The Herald reviewed the text messages, photos and recordings of conversations between the team members, who described it as a night of “initiation” or “hazing.”

The team captains were captured on audio to tell team members deny hazing, if they were asked.
