Boston University to Add Men's Lacrosse

Boston University today announced plans for a new state-of-the-art athletic field for field hockey and the entire BU community, made possible in part by a $3 million gift from Boston-based New Balance. The 110,000 square-foot field will be named New Balance Field and will provide BU’s nationally ranked field hockey team with a new on-campus facility. The team has played its ‘home’ games off-campus since the
01 season.

Along with the development of New Balance Field, which enhances student life by virtually doubling the amount of field space on campus, BU announced the addition of women’s lightweight rowing beginning with the 2012-13 season and that men’s lacrosse wi
ll elevate from a club sport to varsity status beginning with the 2013-14 season. Men’s lacrosse will play home games on Nickerson Field, while women’s lightweight rowing will call the DeWolfe Boathouse home.
