Albertus Magnus College (CT) Add's Lacrosse

Albertus Magnus College announced a major renovation to the College’s outdoor athletic field, the addition of a turf playing surface at the New Haven, Connecticut campus.  The upgrades will occur during the summer of 2011. The renovated field will remain home to Albertus’ highly successful men’s and women’s soccer programs, and the College will also sponsor men’s and women’s lacrosse as their 13th and 14th varsity sports, beginning in the spring of 2013.

“This is a very exciting step for Albertus Magnus College and our Athletic Department. The addition of a turf field and lacrosse represents a new era for Albertus Athletics. Our student-athletes will have the opportunity to compete on a world class facility, our programming options for our community will grow exponentially, and men’s and women’s lacrosse represent new and exciting spring sports to be enjoyed by our supporters. This decision gives our programs the opportunity to compete at a higher level,” said President Julia M. McNamara.
