The Princeton MEN’S SWIMMING AND DIVING season was suspended Dec. 15 following the discovery of “vulgar and offensive” materials that included messages on a University-sponsored team listserv. The material was “misogynistic and racist in nature,” according to a University release.
“The behavior that we have learned about is simply unacceptable,” Athletic Director Mollie Marcoux Samaan ’91 said in the release. “It is antithetical to the values of our athletic program and of the University.” On Dec. 22, the University announced that it had canceled the remainder of the season, which included two dual meets and the Ivy League Championships.
