The decision follows an internal school investigation into the team, which found that several players violated the school's Code of Conduct during a recent incident that took place outside of school hours and off school property. Details of the incident were not disclosed, nor were the identities of the involved players.

In a statement, St. Joe’s President Christopher Fulco said the behavior is unacceptable and there must be consequences.
