FARGO – Two people have been charged in Cass County District Court in connection with incidents that occurred on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 and involved individuals who at the time were members of North Dakota State University’s women’s softball team.So, today we find out that two NDSU Bison softball players Alexandria Sobrero and Cassidy Szeredy are facing charges of harassment and disorderly conduct as the result of a team party that went south late last year. This comes on the heels of five UND hockey players being charged for allegedly supplying alcoholic beverages to minors during a team party prior to the 2012-13 season.
The charges stem from an initiation party for freshman players that included beer-chugging contests and forced shots of liquor, one of the players allegedly told police.
Cassidy Szeredy is charged with harassment and disorderly counduct, a Class A misdemeanor and a Class B misdemeanor, respectively, according to a Monday afternoon news release from the Cass County State’s Attorney’s Office.
It will be interesting to see how the NDSU athletic department handles this case. We will see if the NDSU softball team has a win all cost attitude or will these two players sit out a game or two.
