His transgression: premarital sex.
The Utah-based school, operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, recently suspended Davies from tho No. 3 ranked squad, according to the Salt Lake Tribune,
Davies, 19, has been dismissed from the team for the rest of the season, but has been allowed to remain in school while the situation is under review by the Honor Code Office.
Davies was “extremely remorseful [and] heartbroken,” the newspaper reports from a source.
Cougars teammate Jim Fredette says Davies “told us everything. He told us he was sorry and that he let us down. We just held our heads high and told him it was okay, that it is life, and you make mistakes, and you just got to play through it.”
