La Roche College (DIII PA) Adds Women's Lacrosse

PITTSBURGH, Jan. 29, 2015 – La Roche College will add NCAA Div. III women’s lacrosse to its roster of athletic programs for the 2015-16 academic year. “Lacrosse continues to grow in popularity, especially for female athletes playing at the high school level across the country, but especially in Pennsylvania,” Director of Athletics Jim Tinkey said. “The addition of women’s lacrosse was in the plans when the College renovated its athletic complex and built a turf field this past year.

 It will be a celebration when the Redhawks play their first game next spring.” The Redhawks will compete within the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference with four other colleges and universities. There will be a women’s lacrosse championship in the conference in 2016.
