An LSU tennis player who was seen on video using a racial slur is no longer part of the team, as first reported by The Advocate.
Maddie Scharfenstein, a freshman at Slidell, was caught on video using the insult and laughing with others. She is no longer listed on the LSU women’s tennis list.
LSU released a statement over the weekend initiating an internal investigation into the matter.
“We are aware of the social media post about one of our student-athletes and are taking immense and deliberate steps to address it,” LSU said in a statement released Saturday. “We will not tolerate behavior that violates our core values and expectations of student conduct.”
Scharfenstein has never appeared on an mtch for LSU.
