Harvard looking into lewd document by cross country team

Associated Press

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard University is investigating a report that the men’s cross country team created sexually explicit documents about the women’s cross country team.

University Athletic Director Bob Scalise said Tuesday that he’s asking school lawyers to look into the matter. The Harvard Crimson student newspaper reports that the men’s cross country team produced yearly spreadsheets about members of the women’s’ team, sometimes rating their appearances and making lewd comments.

The spreadsheet was created before an annual dance with the women’s team. The captain of the men’s team told The Crimson he’s ashamed of lewd comments made in past years.

Harvard canceled its men’s soccer team’s season last week after finding out members created a document with sexually explicit comments about the women’s soccer team. Scalise says Harvard won’t tolerate demeaning behavior.
