Rowlett, Bridges Have Appeals Denied
The subcommittee ruled that Casey Rowlett and Scott Bridges, both senior starters, would remain suspended for the rest of the 2005 season. The ruling stems from the players' indefinite suspensions March 28 for "violations of team policy." "I regret that Scott and Casey will not be able to rejoin our team," said Arkansas coach Dave Van Horn in a prepared statement released late Thursday. "I wish them both the best in the future. It is now time for everyone involved to move forward." The released stated both Rowlett and Bridges said they "respect the decision," but also were "disappointed at the outcome of the appeal." Neither could be reached for comment late Thursday. Rowlett, a center fielder from Jones, Okla., was leading the Southeastern Conference with a .473 batting average when he was suspended. He came two at-bats short of the 95 needed to qualify for Arkansas' single-season batting average record, which is .425 and was set by Jeremy Jackson in 1997. He had 44 hits, nine doubles, 21 runs, 34 RBIs and 16 stolen bases in 23 games. Bridges, a second baseman from White Hall, was second on the team with a .410 batting average. He was on a school-record pace and still is among the SEC leaders with 22 stolen bases in 24 attempts. He also had 25 runs, seven doubles, three homers and 15 RBIs in 22 games.
