Busch Suspends Eight Cavaliers

Virginia swimming and diving head coach Augie Busch announced Friday that eight student-athletes have been suspended for the team’s season-opening meet for violation of team rules.

Busch announced that seniors Meredith Cavalier and Hillary Petersen, junior David Ingraham and sophomores Nick Alexiou, Rodney Fentress, Yannick Kaeser, Jordan Sacks and Chris Webb will miss the meet against Navy on Oct. 25.

“The University of Virginia and our athletic department demands its student-athletes to adhere to the highest standards of integrity and accountability and our swimming and diving program is no different,” Busch said. “These eight student-athletes have breached those standards and have subsequently been suspended for one meet. I am confident that they have learned from this experience and we are all eager to move forward with a renewed sense of what it means to represent such a special program and university.”

The Cavaliers open the season against Navy on Oct. 25 at 3 p.m. in Annapolis, Md.
