PORT ARTHUR —
Lamar State College Port Arthur is enforcing a two-game suspension of 11 of its softball players after an incident that involved members of the LSU-Eunice softball program, LSC-PA officials announced in a statement Monday.
LSCPA Director of Athletics Scott Street handed down the disciplinary action on Monday afternoon after an investigation into an incident that took place early Wednesday morning, March 22.
Here's more from the college's statement:
Based on the investigative findings, members of the LSU-E team traveled to Port Arthur to confront members of the LSCPA team.
That confrontation took place off-campus in Port Arthur. The two teams had played in a doubleheader in Eunice, La., earlier in the day Tuesday, March 21.
The 11 members of the LSCPA program are suspended from a doubleheader against Baton Rouge Community College on Tuesday, March 28. The women will also be required to serve a collective 40 hours of community service.
Street and his staff conducted the independent investigation of the incident. No charges were filed with local law enforcement authorities.
