Louisville Kicks 3 Players Off Soccer Team For Party That Led To 29 Testing Positive
Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports
Louisville has kicked three players off their soccer team after they threw a big party that led to 29 people testing positive for the virus...
quote:

The three student-athletes being dismissed have each had prior team violations and were primarily responsible for organizing the party on Saturday.

"I'm extremely disappointed in these young men and particularly with the three that have been dismissed," Hayden said. "They have demonstrated with their actions now and previously that they do not echo the culture of this program. Our student-athletes are held to a high standard of conduct as representatives of our program and university."

U of L athletic director Vince Tyra says he "fully support(s)" Hayden's decision.

"It is clear that these student-athletes did not meet the code of conduct of the university or their team," Tyra said. "Ignoring the safety protocols issued by federal, state and local officials, as well as the athletic department, is unacceptable and dangerous. Their history of actions are not in alignment with the values of this university and athletics department."

They didn't break any laws. Hope these kids sue the athletic department and these administrators.
