WBZ-TV reported last night five members of the Needham High girls' soccer team were suspended for the alleged hazing of at least two freshmen. In addition, Rockets head coach Carl Tarabelli has been placed on administrative leave.
The report also indicated the parents of the suspended players moved to file an injunction to overturn the ruling on Monday. The Rockets, ranked 16th in the final regular-season ESPNBoston.com Top 20 poll, are scheduled to play a first-round Division I South tournament game today, playing host to Brockton. A ruling on the injunction is expected to be handed down this afternoon.
