Six freshmen on the Cal Poly softball team were suspended for “a violation of team rules,” a Cal Poly spokesperson said Monday.
All of the freshmen were barred from playing in the Kajikawa Classic to start the team’s season last weekend at Arizona State.
The Mustangs went 2-3 using 11 players from their roster of 17.
The incident — the details of which Cal Poly isn’t specifying — took place before the season began.
Two players, Taylor Yzaguirre and Sierra Hyland, will rejoin the team for this weekend’s tournament at Stanford, the Nike Invitational.
Four others who are part of the suspended group — Ashley Tornio, Shawna McDonough, Kiersten Nordin and Courtney Tyler — won’t be playing.
Cal Poly was ranked sixth in the Big West Conference in the preseason poll.
The Mustangs were 19-34-1 overall and 8-16 in the Big West last season.
Cal Poly’s start to its season was highlighted by a 6-4 win over No. 8 Oregon on Friday.
