Chatham University (DIII PA) Adds Lacrosse

PITTSBURGH, Pa - The Chatham University Athletic Department would like to officially announce that they will be expanding in the 2016-2017 Academic Year by adding both Women's and Men's Lacrosse. A search for new head coaches will begin immediately, and Chatham will play in the single-sport Ohio River Lacrosse Conferences (ORLC & ORWLC). These were formed in the fall of 2014 when the President's Athletic Conference (PAC) and the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference (HCAC) aligned to create these conferences for men's and women's lacrosse.

Current PAC members Saint Vincent College, Thiel College, Washington & Jefferson College, and Westminster College sponsor men's and women's varsity lacrosse programs, with Bethany College sponsoring a men's program and Waynesburg University and Thomas More College a women's program. In addition, five HCAC member schools will compete in the ORLWC, while four HCAC member schools will compete in the ORLC.

"The addition of women's and men's lacrosse is an example of Chatham's ongoing commitment to the expansion and support of our athletic program," states Athletic Director Leonard Trevino. "We are excited to begin the process of building lacrosse programs that will compete at the highest levels, while continuing our traditions of academic excellence."
