CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Another men’s sports team at Harvard University is facing scrutiny over lewd comments made about female athletes.

The Harvard Crimson student newspaper reports the men’s cross country team has created yearly spreadsheets about the women’s cross country team and some included sexual comments.

The spreadsheet was created before an annual dance with members of the women’s team and rated their physical appearances.

The captain of the men’s team tells the Crimson he’s ashamed of the 2014 spreadsheet but this year’s didn’t include lewd comments.

University athletic director Bob Scalise says he’ll “address any credible information” about the spreadsheet.

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.
