John A. Logan student athletes cited for underage drinking | Crime
CARTERVILLE, IL (KFVS) - Dozens of John A. Logan athletic students have been cited for underage drinking.
According to John A. Logan President Michael Dreith, 28 athletes were cited in early September at the Logan Lake Apartments at 701 Eagle Pass Drive in Carterville.
The student athletes were fined in court and attended seminars requested by college coaches.
It happened before the start of the season.
Dreith says what the students did violates athletic polices and is disappointed with what happened.
All student athletes are all eligible to play on their teams this year since they paid all fines and completed the requirements from the coaches.
Dreith said it was fortunate that there were no DUIs and no property damage.
Dreith hopes this will be a lesson learned for those involved plus be a warning for other students in the future.
