Campbell University To Add Women's Lacrosse

BUIES CREEK, N.C. - One of the nation's fastest-growing sports will come to Campbell in 2012-13 when the University will field a varsity women's lacrosse program.

Last month, the Board of Trustees voted on and approved the addition of the 21st sport in CU's Division I athletics program. Campbell will be the sixth Big South Conference member to field the sport for the 2013 season, joining current members High Point, Liberty and Presbyterian, plus Coastal Carolina and Winthrop - both of which have announced 2013 starting dates.

"We are excited about the addition of women's lacrosse to our intercollegiate athletics program," said Dr. Dennis Bazemore, interim Director of Athletics and Vice President for Student Life. "This is another opportunity for Campbell to reach out and to recruit more outstanding young women to the University."

According to Dr. Bazemore, a head coach will be hired by September 1 in order to begin the recruiting process and to prepare for the program's initial varsity season in the spring of 2013.
