Ex-Missouri Soccer Player Sues Over Scholarship
COLUMBIA (AP) -- A former University of Missouri soccer player is suing the school and the women's soccer coach over what she calls an unmet promise of a full four-year scholarship.
Sophomore Ann Alexandra Charlebois sued coach Brian Blitz and the University's governing board on December 5 in Boone County Circuit Court. The lawsuit says Charlebois agreed to attend Missouri only after Blitz vowed to provide more than $106,000 in support through 2015.
Charlebois received a 50 percent partial scholarship as a freshman. Her attorney says she was kicked off the team in September after complaining about receiving a similar amount of financial aid this year.
The Columbia Daily Tribune first reported the lawsuit Wednesday.
Blitz has declined to comment.
