She was released from the team after only one semester and lost her scholarship. Dimanche transferred to the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, where she played soccer this past academic year, her attorney said.
A Regional University System of Oklahoma report on its investigation into her complaint stated Bailey cited two reasons for removing Dimanche from the team: “She was not producing or improving as a player ... and she was considered a disruptive influence on the team because of her complaint ... and the team’s response to this complaint.”
The report states: “Removing Miss Dimanche from the team because of her complaint about what she perceived as racial harassment was retaliation even if other factors contributed to her removal.”
