NORFOLK, Va. – The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) has announced the suspension of four student-athletes, following an altercation involving the Bethune-Cookman and Boston College baseball teams on Sunday.

Following a thorough review, four Bethune-Cookman student-athletes (Carlos Lequerica, Isaak Gutierrez, Seth Lovell and Jordan Delucia) violated NC AA Rule 5-16-a: Fighting and NCAA Rule 5-16-c: Leaving position to participate in a fight. NCAA rules stipulate the student-athletes in question be ejected from that game and suspended for the next four contests.

In addition, three Boston College student-athletes (Dan Metzdorf, Aaron Soucy and Joe Suozzi) were also ejected.

Thus, the Bethune-Cookman student-athletes have been suspended for the Wildcats’ next four games, which are Friday, March 1 – Monday, March 4, versus Ohio State in Daytona Beach, Fla.

“We expect our student-athletes and coaches to demonstrate good sportsmanship before, during and after games,” MEAC Commissioner Dr. Dennis E. Thomas said.
