MILLERSVILLE, Pa. (AP) - Nine Millersville University football players have been reinstated after authorities dropped an investigation of an alleged sexual assault, the school said Thursday.
The players were suspended Sept. 13 but were allowed to return to the team Wednesday after a university review was closed.
``Millersville University concluded its Student Code of Conduct review and, based on evidence presented, determined that no further action can be taken,'' the university said in a statement.
Authorities have said a 19-year-old Millersville student and several witnesses reported an alleged sexual assault during an off-campus party on Sept. 2. On Sept. 18, Lancaster police dropped their investigation because the woman told police she no longer wanted to cooperate.
The nine players, whose names have not been released, were not suspended from the school, and the details of why they were suspended from the team have not been made public. University spokeswoman Amy Dmitzak declined to give further information Thursday.
Millersville's football team competes in the Division II Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference and has a 1-3 record so far this season. The roster had 87 players at the start of the season.
One of 14 state-owned universities, the school has about 7,200 undergraduate students and nearly 1,000 graduate students. Millersville is about 65 miles west of Philadelphia.
