2. Claremont-M-S Ends Men's Season

The men's soccer season at Claremont-Mudd-Scripps is over.

"On October 6, 2022, CMS Athletics, in partnership with Claremont McKenna College and Harvey Mudd College Deans of Students Offices, initiated a review of potential violations of CMS Athletics Student Code of Conduct and Hazing Policy by members of the CMS men's soccer team that took place on the evening of Saturday, October 1, on the CMC campus. The members of the men's soccer team cooperated fully with the coaches and college administrators' review of the incident.

While the investigation proceeded, CMS Athletics placed all team activities on hold and canceled the October 8 men's soccer game against Pomona-Pitzer.

The investigation found that nearly all members of the team, acting as a team, violated multiple conduct standards, including organizing and carrying out an event which subjected new team members to multiple acts of hazing. CMS Athletics educates all student-athletes on the definition of, and prohibition against hazing. All CMS Athletics teams meet with athletic administrators at the start of the season to review, understand, and sign the CMS Student Athlete Code of Conduct and Hazing Policy.

As a result, the remainder of the men's fall soccer season is canceled, including any opportunities for SCIAC and NCAA tournament play.

7. Conkers

Competitive nut-swinging sounds like something not suitable for this newsletter, but that's just because you've never heard of conkers, Axios writes.

Driving the news: The 55th annual World Conker Championships took place on Sunday about 100 miles north of London, with roughly 5,000 spectators and over 300 competitors.

How it works: The centuries-old English game comprises trying to break your opponent's conker (a chestnut) by swinging your own conker-attached-to-a-string at theirs.

  • Strikers get three shots to make contact before switching. If the strings tangle, an extra shot is awarded to whomever yells "snags" first.
  • The game is over when the first conker breaks, unless they break simultaneously, in which case new conkers are selected and play continues.
