TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

The University of Delaware has suspended 19 members of its swimming and diving team for violating COVID-19 guidelines.

The suspensions from all athletic-related activities range from six weeks to all semester, SwimSwam reported, and follow a Sept. 26 party at an off-campus residence.

All involved were quarantined and have tested negative for COVID-19, WDEL reported.

“We have spoken to our student-athletes at length about their responsibility of being back on campus,” UD athletic director Chrissi Rawak said in an announcement. “The protocols and guidelines put into place are ones that must be followed for us to provide a safe environment for not only the university, but our community as well.

“While we have been fortunate with the behavior from a majority of our student-athletes in following the guidelines and social pledge, we cannot let up, we must stay focused and disciplined in all of our choices.”
