from Rob White of the Omaha World-Herald,
An early-morning incident in an Old Market parking lot has led UNO to dismiss Matt White from the hockey team. The co-captain was the team’s third-leading goal-scorer last season.
Also dismissed from the team Friday was incoming freshman defenseman Preston Hodge. Alex Simonson, a senior forward, has been suspended pending further investigation by the athletic department.
White, Hodge and Simonson were each ticketed Aug. 3 on suspicion of misdemeanor assault. Allegedly the incident involved racial slurs.
“We are extremely disappointed in the actions of these students,” UNO Athletic Director Trev Alberts said in a press release. “We will not tolerate any misconduct of this nature. We will continue to work diligently to ensure our student-athletes understand the importance of tolerance and respect for others.”
