Cheating by more than a dozen freshman cadets on a test and alleged misconduct by members of the lacrosse team are under separate investigations at the Air Force Academy, according to the Colorado Springs Gazette.
Academy spokesman Lt. Col. Allen Herritage said Monday the test consists of questions related to “military history, rank structure and other general knowledge.”
Herritage went on to say he couldn’t divulge any further details because the investigation is ongoing.
Herritage also wouldn’t divulge more information on the investigation into the lacrosse team, but he did confirm an investigation into the team indeed was underway.
After a 2014 Gazette investigation revealed misconduct by academy athletes, the school undertook an internal investigation and redoubled efforts to ensure it was recruiting players who would avoid trouble.
Last summer, then-Superintendent Lt. Gen. Michelle Johnson said the academy had put its athlete-conduct woes behind it. “Now they are our shining stars,” she said in July.
