The State of Lacrosse features a state-by-state look at lacrosse growth in the US. In each post we'll interview individuals involved in growing lacrosse in their home state. Today we focus on Alaska and speak with Mike Driscoll and Brandon Cota. Mike runs the Anchorage Lacrosse League which oversees a Men's, Women's and Youth league in the Anchorage area. Brandon is a member of the Anchorage Lacrosse men's team and earlier this summer uploaded a YouTube helmet cam video of one of their games.
Tell us a little bit about lacrosse in Alaska?
I think some people were surprised to see a helmet cam clip come out of all places Anchorage, Alaska. Can you give me a little background on the video?
BC: My buddy who you see in the very first part of the video (Connor Meyer) had a GoPro Helmet cam he uses for longboarding videos, and he approached me on doing one for lacrosse.
Philippi, WV -- Alderson-Broaddus College is excited to announce the addition of five athletic teams to its current roster. Football, men’s and women’s lacrosse, women’s tennis and men’s volleyball will begin play in 2012.
“This is a new and exciting time here at our school,” said Athletic Director Dennis Creehan who will also serve as Head Football Coach. “We will be adding these sports immediately as part of a new academic business model at A-B to help leverage growth of our institution.
This past spring, we jumped on the bandwagon here at Oglethorpe University by starting a men's lacrosse program. In 2012-13, we'll be introducing a women's lacrosse team to our campus. The fastest-growing game from the high school to college levels, the sport has been a boon to our campus and our athletic program.
But the process of getting to the first face-off took a lot of strategizing, planning, and communication. In fact, it took five years and a lot more energy and patience than any of us in the athletics department ever anticipated.
Despite all the hard work, adding this new sport has been an exciting process that has taught us about partnering, compromise, and coming up with unique solutions. And we know that being one of only two NCAA Division III schools in Georgia to offer men's lacrosse and one of only four to sponsor women's lacrosse puts us on the map.

The addition of lacrosse as a varsity sport is made possible by a generous gift of one million dollars from trustee Steve Trulaske '79, and by leadership gifts from James K. Baker '53 and Joe and Nancy Hollingsworth '71 & '72. Their gifts will fund start-up costs and the initial operational expenses of the two teams.
"Interest in lacrosse has been increasing among our students for some time, and we're also hearing from more prospective students who are interested in participating in the sport at the varsity level in college," notes Page Cotton, director of athletics at DePauw. "Also, lacrosse is a conference sport in the North Coast Athletic Conference and this provides us with a complete offering of programs for our student-athletes."
