CHARLOTTE -- A recent sporting goods manufacturer study says lacrosse grew by 37.7 percent last year. If it keeps up that pace, it will surpass ice hockey as far as total participation. As Charlotte prepares to welcome a new major league lacrosse team this fall, News 14 Carolina's Tim Baier reports it's a sport that's catching on in the Tar Heel state.

Q: What is your guys position with the Men’s varsity club lacrosse team right now? Any chance they become varsity soon?
JM: Right now we aren’t really involved with it. They’re registered under Recreation and Wellness and there are some fundraising activities going on to see the level of support for the program. I think that the athletic department is doing a new strategic plan now and hopefully that will be approved by the board of trustees on Friday, April 22nd. The status of that sport I think is kind of a “wait and see” to see if it whether its going to a varsity NCAA sport on campus or remain a club sport for a while.
