Muskingum University (DIII OH) Adds Lacrosse

Muskingum University is proud to announce that men’s and women’s lacrosse will be added as a varsity sport beginning in the 2014-15 academic year. Muskingum joins seven other Ohio Athletic Conference schools in adding lacrosse, which has been the fastest-growing team sport in America over the past decade.

For the 2013-14 year, Muskingum will field a team that will compete at the junior varsity level, in preparation for the NCAA Division III competition the following year. The teams will play their home games on the ProGrass Turf on Sherman Field in McConagha Stadium.

“It’s always exciting to offer additional athletic opportunities to our student-athletes,” said Muskingum Athletic Director Larry Shank. “Adding lacrosse will enhance Muskingum and showcase our university to a greater number of high school students.”

The addition of men’s and women’s lacrosse will elevate Muskingum’s athletic department to 21 varsity sports.
