TOWSON, Md., Aug. 31 (UPI) -- The cheerleading squad at Maryland's Towson University was suspended for the 2013-14 academic year for hazing, a university official said.

Student Affairs Vice President Deb Moriarty said the team would appeal its suspension for the 2013-14 academic year for violating the school's hazing policy but wouldn't be allowed to perform or practice in the meantime, Towson's school newspaper, The Tower Light, reported.

Moriarty said the official appeal was expected to be filed next week, the newspaper said Thursday.

Cheerleading Coach Edy Pratt declined to comment.

Towson's cheerleading squad was named national champion last season and had received an automatic bid to compete in this year's championships.

The report did not include details of the hazing that led to the suspension.
