Juniata College (DIII PA) Adds Women's Lacrosse

HUNTINGDON, Pa. - Juniata College has elected to add three new varsity sports to its formidable lineup of athletic programs beginning with the fall 2017 season. The college will be adding men’s and women’s golf, plus women’s lacrosse, giving Juniata 22 varsity intercollegiate sports.

“Lacrosse is the fastest growing sport in the nation for high schools and colleges and many women are seeking opportunities to extend their careers as athletes while receiving a high quality education,” said athletic director and head coach for men’s basketball Greg Curley. “Adding these sports also will allow us to extend our athletic recruiting beyond our traditional reach into states such as Maryland, New York, Virginia and New Jersey. The demographic profile of athletes playing lacrosse and golf fits our academic profile to a T.”
