Duke Ladies Show Support For Men's Lacrosse


In a show of solidarity with the Duke University men's lacrosse team, members of the school's women's team plan to wear sweatbands with the word "Innocent" written on them.

The university canceled the rest of the season for the highly ranked men's team because of a woman's complaint she was raped in March at a team party where she had been hired to strip.

The women's plan to wear sweatbands on their arms or legs was reported Wednesday by The Herald-Sun of Durham. The teams plays Northwestern in the NCAA semifinals Friday.

"We want to win a national championship for ourselves, but definitely also for the university and the men's team," junior Leigh Jester told the newspaper. "They don't really have a chance to play their season, which is a shame."

The women also invited former men's lacrosse coach Mike Pressler to speak to the team after a practice Tuesday. Pressler resigned last month amid the rape scandal.

Women's coach Kerstin Kimel told the newspaper that Pressler's message to her players included believing in themselves and looking at their season aside from the troubles faced by the men's team.

A university spokesman said Wednesday that the school had no objections to either the sweatbands or the invitation to Pressler.

"They don't clear those things with us ever," said John Burness, Duke's vice president for public affairs. "We're not sitting here looking over people's shoulders quite that much."

I'm surprised these women would tarnish their own accomplishments by supporting the men’s team. Even if they believe these guys are innocent of rape, at the very least these men are guilty of treating women as objects, of sending emails about killing and raping women, of using racial slurs and brandishing a broom to threaten sexual assault on a woman.

Instead of supporting these guys, these women should be appalled that these guys cared so little about the privilege of playing their sport ( at one of the top universities in the country) that they would squander such an awesome opportunity, with such ease. Remember, the captain was already on probation, yet he chose to hire strippers and serve alcohol to minors in the middle of the season. Hardly behavior to honor.

The women’s lacrosse team would do better to stand on its own and not take up the sorry cause for a group of sorry individuals who are mostly at vault for the situation they find themselves in. If the CAPTAIN doesn’t hire strippers, their season remains in tact.
