LSSU reports two NCAA secondary violations

Go Lakers!

Oct. 25, 2005

SAULT STE. MARIE - Lake Superior State University has reported to the NCAA two secondary rules violations involving its hockey program.

Both violations occurred during the 2004-05 hockey season and involved Bylaw 17, playing-season regulations, at the NCAA Division I level.

The first violation involved observation for the purpose of evaluating student-athletes outside the playing season in September, 2004. The other centered on pre-season required hours when NCAA regulations call for no more than eight hours of "countable athletics activity per week."

Both violations were discovered after the 2004-05 season and were reported in accord with NCAA rules and regulations.

According to the violations report, both involved "deliberate actions" to circumvent the regulations and "willful" intent to cover up the violations.

Loss of practice time during the 2005-06 season has resulted from both reports.
