Hamline University is proud to announce that the game known as 'America's first sport' will be the newest women's athletics offering at Minnesota's first university. Women's lacrosse at Hamline will begin in the spring of 2016, making the Pipers part of a sport with deep historical roots which is thriving in popularity across the nation among high school and college students.
"Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing sports in the nation so this new endeavor will open up many new and exciting opportunities for student athletes," Hamline Athletics Director Jason Verdugo said. "We are pleased to be able to build on the strength and depth of Hamline Athletics with a sport that has such a rich history and bright future with a new generation of athletes." Lacrosse is currently offered as a club sport at Hamline, but as part of Division III the new Pipers team will uphold National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) standards and regulations and will compete as an NCAA independent during their first year of competition.
