LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - A second member of the University of Kansas rowing team has filed a lawsuit alleging she was sexually assaulted by a football player at the school.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://bit.ly/1Qlgglt ) the student isn’t named in the lawsuit filed Monday. Her attorney, Dan Curry, says the woman was assaulted Aug. 29 in her room at Jayhawker Towers.

Curry filed lawsuit in March for former Kansas rower Daisy Tackett, who said she was assaulted at Jayhawk Towers in 2014. Curry says the women were assaulted by the same football player, who agreed in March to be expelled. His name hasn’t been released.

University spokeswoman Erinn Barcomb-Peterson declined to comment on individual sexual assault investigations. But she says the university tries to investigate and quickly resolve all reports of sexual assault.
