Sex misconduct revisits elite prep school already under fire

From AP-

An elite New Hampshire prep school is facing new revelations about another competition of sexual conquest two years after a student was convicted of sexually assaulting a freshman as part of a tradition called "Senior Salute."

Eight boys in a St. Paul's School dorm in Concord apparently competed to have their names put on a crown, according to the Concord Monitor, which first reported on the matter. The school it learned about the game from students just before the June 4 commencement and has hired an outside investigator.

"Kids will be disciplined in a swift and appropriate way should that investigation find any violation of our code of conduct. We take these things very seriously," Rector Michael Hirschfeld told The Associated Press on Friday.

Concord police said they learned of the conquest competition while investigating a report of a sexual assault on campus involving students. But police said the competition wasn't linked to their ongoing investigation at the school.
