This morning, President Ransdell and Athletic Director Todd Stewart informed coaches and swimmers about their decision to suspend the team for five years. We reached out to President Ransdell for additional comments, but did not receive a reply.
However, an e-mail was addressed to WKU faculty and staff, saying the action is both prudent and necessary following the conclusions obtained by Bowling Green Police and Title IX Office.
The final police report includes the full complaint filed by former swimmer, Collin Craig. In his complaint to police he says quote: “I was singled out, belittled, threatened, intimidated and shunned.”
But, the ill-defined accusation doesn’t end there.
In one portion of the complaint, regarding sexual assault, Collin refers to a situation where a female was passed out and a male was touching her inappropriately while others watched.
