Prep Athelete Suspended For Designated Driving

A sad article about young prep volleyball athlete at North Andover High School (MA), Erin Cox, who was suspended and stripped of her team captain title for acting as a designated driver for a friend.  Just as Erin made her way to find her friend at an underage drinking party, the police raided the house and Erin was summoned for drinking simply by association.  While not an arrest, the summon caused Erin to get a suspension from 5 games, and also stripped her of her team captain status as part of the school’s strict policy on drinking.  Even with a written vouch of sobriety by an officer who tested Erin that evening, the school has not budged.  Take a look at the article for this controversial story.
