Eastern Mennonite University announces the addition of women's lacrosse to its athletic program. Director of Athletics Dave King says EMU will hire a head coach in the spring of 2017 to begin recruitment, with competition beginning first at the club level before moving into the Old Dominion Athletic Conference for the 2018-19 season.
"I'm thrilled that we will be able to provide more young people the opportunity to develop life skills through playing a collegiate sport," he said. "As we continue to understand what collegiate sports do for young people and the campus community, it's exciting to expand our sport offerings."
The search for EMU's first women's lacrosse coach will begin immediately, with a start date of June 1, he added.
