For the first time since the WKU Swimming and Diving program was suspended, a representative for members of the team is speaking out.
“There’s things that these young men and women are not proud to have engaged in. We’ve got a report here that makes it look as bad as it can possibly be. It’s authored by a person that takes no responsibility for taking part in any of it. It was a group of teammates engaging in what they deemed to be trust building and team building, rite of passage exercises. By no means did they intend this to be a malicious or torturous process,” said attorney Brian Lowder.
Brian Lowder’s clients were accused of hazing and sexual assault in a letter to police by former swimmer Collin Craig. In it, he accuses teammates of forcing him to drink. He also says that team members provided alcohol to recruits, something his teammates accuse him of doing all the same.
