Saint Mary's College (IN DIII) Adds Lacrosse

September 14, 2012 (Notre Dame, Ind.)—Saint Mary's College is proud to announce that lacrosse will be added as a varsity sport beginning in the 2013-14 academic year.

The addition of lacrosse to the varsity athletic program will give Saint Mary's nine varsity sports, all of which compete in the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) as a Division III member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association. Currently, more than 200 NCAA Division III member institutions sponsor women's lacrosse as a varsity sport.

"Increasing our athletic opportunities is always exciting," said Julie Schroeder-Biek, director of Athletics. "With the addition of lacrosse as a championship sport in our league this year, transitioning our well established lacrosse club to the varsity level could not happen at a better time. We feel quite confident that our team will not only be ready to play in 2014, but that we will be competitive from the start of our varsity program."
