Putting the Wild in Wildcats

They’re not the Duke lacrosse team, but the girls from Chico State softball can party with the best of them. They’ll have nothing but time to party, now that the remainder of the their season has been cancelled by school officials for actions that led to an alcohol overdose by a 17-year-old recruit who was visiting the campus.

The overdosee is a high school student who was visiting the campus with her father to checkout the program and meet with the coach and team. Some of the players from the team were hosting a party and decided to drag the recruit along.

The next morning, pops was checking her out of the Enloe Medical Center. She was reported to be lethargic and unresponsive after boozing it up at the party.

The team will forfeit the remaining 20 games on their schedule, and the 12 players who attended the party have been barred from the team. The school has had its share of alcohol induced badness over the years, including two deaths associated with excessive drinking.
