Wabash College (DIII IN) & Cornell College (DIII IA) Add Lacrosse

Wabash College President Patrick E. White announced the addition of men's lacrosse as a varsity sport at the institution, beginning competition in the spring 2015. A search for a varsity head coach will begin immediately.

 “Many high school athletes committed to the sport are looking for excellent colleges where they might continue to play lacrosse while pursuing their education,” President White said. “Adding lacrosse will place Wabash in good conversations with these young men, many from our traditional markets. In addition, lacrosse is fast becoming a national sport with players on our North Coast Athletic Conference lacrosse rosters coming from 31 states. Now Wabash College will gain further attention from young men in high schools and regions where we are less well known.”

Cornell College will field men's and women's lacrosse teams starting with the 2014-15 academic year. The new programs will help Cornell in its goal to provide an exceptional experience for any student interested in athletics, said Cornell Director of Athletics John Cochrane.

"Interest in lacrosse has grown tremendously across the country in the last decade, including in areas where we already recruit students," Cochrane added. "Having lacrosse as an option will help us attract even more talented student-athletes."
