Eight freshmen have been suspended from the Air Force men's lacrosse team for unspecified violations of academy standards, The Gazette has learned.

The academy would not confirm which players were suspended. However, eight freshmen who had been listed on an Air Force roster were removed from an updated roster. They are: midfielder Ben Beath (St. Louis), midfielder Andy Bettinger (Delmar, N.Y.), attackman Mac Fife (Alexandria, Va.), attackman Pat Harrison (Annapolis, Md.), midfielder Scott Hughes (Chattanooga, Tenn.), midfielder Alex Kauth (Dayton, Ohio), attackman Ben Love (Westminster, Md.) and attackman Riley Seidel (Toledo, Ohio).

Air Force officials also would not comment on the specific infractions or whether players might face expulsion from the academy.

“I can confirm that there were members of the intercollegiate lacrosse team who have been removed from the roster, but I cannot discuss the specific reasons they were removed or the details of their individual cases because of privacy act restrictions,” said Meade Warthen of the academy’s public affairs department. “Violations of academy standards can deal with issues involving academics, the honor code, athletics or conduct.”
