EDMOND, Okla. (AP) — The University of Central Oklahoma has suspended its cheer team for the rest of the school year amid reports of hazing on the squad. In a statement on Saturday, University President Patti Neuhold-Ravikumar also said the squad wouldn’t participate in any national competition for two years.

Neuhold-Ravikumar wouldn’t reveal the nature of the hazing, citing student privacy laws. She said individual team members who participated in the hazing might face removal from the university’s squad and suspension. Those cleared would undergo a membership review and may be allowed to try out for next year’s team.
