HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) - The Hutchinson Community College women’s basketball team is under investigation for alleged improper benefits to players.
The National Junior College Athletic Association confirmed Tuesday that it is investigating the program. Assistant executive director Mark Krug says an issue was brought to the organization’s attention last week. He declined to comment further.
Hutchinson coach John Ontjes says the school has until June 5 to respond to the NJCAA.
In eight seasons under Ontjes, the Blue Dragons are 257-26 and have won five consecutive Jayhawk West titles.
This season, Hutchinson’s only loss was in the NJCAA national championship game to Chipola, Florida.
