California University of Pennsylvania will begin random drug testing on its ice hockey players despite the sport remaining a club-based activity, the university announced Wednesday.

The decision comes on the heels of a drug bust April 16 where two Cal U hockey players – brothers Steve and Jesse Powell of Baldwin – were arrested for allegedly running a large marijuana operation out of a Second Street residence.

The Powells were dismissed from the hockey team and face drug charges in Washington County.

Cal U currently subjects athletes from its NCAA Division II athletic programs to random drug testing.

An interim suspension of Cal U's three hockey teams was also lifted Wednesday after the university conducted an investigation.

Cal U has three club ice hockey teams. Two compete in the American Collegiate Hockey Association — a men's College Hockey East league team and the women's Delaware Valley Collegiate Hockey Conference team. Another men's team competes in the College Hockey Association league.
