Richmond Considers Adding D1 Lacrosse, Will Remain Club At This Time

The University of Richmond will not elevate its men’s lacrosse program from varsity club status to Division I at this time, UR Athletic Director Jim Miller said on Friday.

The school’s board of trustees, which met Thursday and Friday, considered that possibility. UR will continue to examine the issue, according to Miller.

“At this time, the university is satisfied with the sport mix we have. We’re satisfied with the current status of men’s lacrosse,” said Miller. “We’re very positive about the success of the current sports we have at Richmond, and we’re looking for ways to enhance those sports.”
