linebacker Steve Filer, kicker Nick Tausch, cornerback Lo Wood, and
offensive linemen Chris Watt and former Ryle standout Tate Nichols; incoming freshman
point guard Eric Atkins; and incoming hockey goalie Steven

alcohol to minors. The sheriff's spokesman said most had been
released on $150 bond.
Notre Dame officials said coaches were aware of the arrests and
any possible discipline would be handled internally.
