MONTEVALLO, Ala. – University of Montevallo President John W. Stewart III announced the addition of women’s lacrosse as the 16th intercollegiate sport following approval by the Board of Trustees at its annual meeting in November.
Women’s lacrosse will become the ninth women’s intercollegiate sport at the University. “I would like to thank the University Board of Trustees and President Stewart for approving women’s lacrosse as we continue to add opportunities for prospective students,” said Athletic Director Mark Richard.
“Lacrosse is a growing sport on the national landscape and we are excited to be part of the sport’s continued growth within the state of Alabama.” The women’s lacrosse program will begin its inaugural season in the spring of 2016.
A national search to find the first head coach in the history of the program will begin immediately. The program will play home games at the brand new natural grass field at the track and field facility, which will be completed in the spring.
