NCAA Places Lane College on 4 Year Probation

JACKSON, Tenn.

The NCAA has placed Lane College on probation for four years for major violations in its Division II athletic program.

The penalty was announced Wednesday in Indianapolis. Officials said the school had multiple violations over several years, which led to a “lack of institutional control” and a “failure to monitor.”

According to the NCAA, 32 student-athletes in eight sports were allowed to practice, compete and receive financial aid while ineligible. Another 48 athletes in seven sports competed without being included on squad lists.

Besides the probation, the school lost scholarships and is ineligible for telecasts for the next two academic years.

The small historically Black university is affiliated with the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church.
