Pomona-Pitzer suspends overnight recruit visits for prospective student-athletes after ‘incident’

The Pomona-Pitzer athletic department has suspended overnight recruiting visits with prospective student-athletes after an unspecified incident that took place at Pitzer College on the weekend of Nov. 9, the department said.

Interim athletic director Jennifer Scanlon said an investigation is taking place, and the suspension of overnight visits is “pending the results” of that investigation.

“We take this matter very seriously, and interim measures have been taken by [Pitzer College and Pomona College] as the investigative process for each unfolds,” Scanlon said in an email to TSL. “In addition, we are reviewing our procedures for overnight recruit visits.”

Scanlon said other recruits were hosted “without incident.” She did not specify which sports team was involved.

The incident included “a small group of athletes, and did not present a systemic or team-wide issue,” she said.
