The Cornell University men's lacrosse team was placed on “temporary suspension” after a hazing incident involving “coerced alcohol consumption by underaged freshmen,” spokesman John J. Carberry said Friday. All fall competitions have been canceled, but the team, which made the sport’s Final Four in last year’s National Collegiate Athletic Association tournament, will continue training and practicing “in accordance with sanction guidelines,” according to a university statement. Cornell’s president, David J. Skorton, has been outspoken about hazing issues, and in 2011 said the university would eliminate pledging in its Greek system in hopes of ending the practice.
