A member of the University of New Mexico's women's soccer team was hospitalized this weekend after she and other freshman players were allegedly hazed by some of their teammates. The woman was taken to the hospital late Sunday from her dorm room, where she was found heavily intoxicated and having trouble breathing. She had taken part in "some kind of 'initiation' event," a report filed by campus police stated. During the event, the team's freshmen were allegedly forced to strip and drink large amounts of alcohol, and they were sprayed with urine, according to KOB, an Albuquerque news station that spoke with a player's parent. A spokesperson at the university's athletic department said that members of the team are being interviewed about the allegations.
