BENNINGTON, Vt. – Southern Vermont College is excited to announce the addition of an NCAA Division III women’s lacrosse program and a junior varsity men’s basketball team, both for the 2014-15 school year.
Women’s lacrosse will be the 11th varsity program offered by SVC. The choice of women’s lacrosse hopes to feed off the growing popularity of the sport, notably on the girls’ side at the high school level throughout Vermont; 32 high schools in the state currently offer girls’ lacrosse, as well as those in the nearby New York and Massachusetts areas.
“Women’s lacrosse will create athletic opportunities for female students, consistent with our nation’s effort to give real meaning to Title IX,” said SVC President Karen Gross.
