The women's golf team is scheduled to begin competition during the 2014-15 academic year, while the lacrosse program will start play in 2015-16. The addition of the programs will continue Central Michigan's long-standing compliance with Title IX and will provide equitable athletics participation and education opportunities for both men and women.
"This is truly an exciting day for Central Michigan University and our athletics program as we continue to provide additional opportunities for young women to pursue their athletic and academic dreams," CMU Director of Athletics Dave Heeke said. "These sports are great additions to our overall program and will attract outstanding student-athletes who will contribute to our Championship Culture."
Capital University will add men’s and women’s lacrosse as varsity sports beginning in the 2013-14 academic year, director of athletics Steve Bruning announced.
Games for both teams are set to begin in the spring of 2014. All home matches will be played at the institution’s 3,000-seat Bernlohr Stadium.
“After extensive discussion and research, we’ve decided to add men’s and women’s lacrosse programs at Capital,” Bruning said. “Lacrosse is one of the fastest-growing sports in the United States, and we believe the sport will bring new opportunities to enhance the student-athlete experience, both on and off the field, at Capital.”
