Kansas Wesleyan’s baseball team has formally accused Bethany College of contaminating its water cooler with paint thinner, which has resulted in an investigation according to Kendall Rogers of D1Baseball.com.
Kansas Wesleyan University athletic director Steve Wilson said a KWU player or staff member discovered a foreign substance had been mixed into the team’s water during a doubleheader Sunday.
There is a photo circulating on Twitter allegedly showing contamination.
Bethany College then went on to lose the game by a score of 33-2 to close the series and avoid a three-game sweep. Both Kansas Wesleyan and Bethany are NAIA schools that play in the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference.
Wilson declined further comment, including whether any players, coaches or support staff drank the water or became ill.
Kansas Wesleyan and Bethany are 22 miles apart in central Kansas and are longtime rivals in athletics.
