Illinois Wesleyan University (DIII) Adds Lacrosse

BLOOMINGTON — Illinois Wesleyan announced Wednesday it will add a men’s lacrosse team in the spring of 2014 and women’s lacrosse the following spring.

“Lacrosse is the fastest-growing sport in the Midwest and is an emerging sport among College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin schools,” said IWU athletic director Dennie Bridges. “Offering lacrosse gives a significant number of high school students another reason to consider attending Illinois Wesleyan.”

 Bridges said a search for a men’s lacrosse coach will begin immediately with a similar search for a women’s coach to begin next spring. Lacrosse home games will be at Tucci Stadium.
