Eighteen incoming freshmen have joined the Air Force lacrosse team for the 2012 season. Among the group are 12 direct entries and six individuals who attended the USAFA Prep School.
Last week, the Falcons’ class of 2015 participated in the annual Acceptance Parade, which is held to mark the completion of BCT (Basic Cadet Training), representing a significant milestone in each cadet’s four-year journey. During the parade, the newest class of cadets is “accepted” into the cadet wing, as they begin their fourth-class academic year, which extends through May. Meanwhile, classes for all cadets at the Air Force began Thursday, Aug. 4.
