Women's soccer hazing incident investigation launched

The New Mexico women’s soccer team may have partaken in a hazing incident over the weekend, according to a UNM Athletics Department press release issued early Monday evening.

The Athletics Department is using an outside investigator to determine the details of the incident and interview team members. The release states the investigation is in the early stages and more information will be given to the media once it becomes available.

“This is a situation that we take very seriously, and will do everything in our power to get answers to what occurred,” the release states.

Greg Archuleta, sports information officer for women’s soccer, said UNM Athletics is not allowed to comment on ongoing investigations.

The Lobos played their first exhibition of the season on Saturday, a 3-0 loss at Arizona.
