ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The NCAA says it won't impose sanctions on the University of New Mexico women's soccer team over hazing.

KOB-TV reports (http://goo.gl/HCiezc) that the governing body said Wednesday it leaves all allegation of hazing for schools to address.

Last week, the University of New Mexico suspended women's soccer coach Kit Vela for a week without pay and suspended 22 players for one game over the hazing episode.

The soccer team later apologized for a hazing case that sent two players to the hospital for excessive alcohol intoxication.

Officials say the suspensions for the players will be staggered across the season so UNM can field a team.
