College of Idaho (NAIA) Adds Men's Lacrosse

CALDWELL, Idaho – College of Idaho athletic director Reagan Rossi has announced that men's lacrosse has been moved from a club sport to varsity status for the 2018 season.

 Lacrosse will become the tenth men's varsity sport – joining baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, skiing, soccer, swimming and track & field. It marks the first varsity men's lacrosse team in the State of Idaho – and joins the University of Providence (Mont.), Marymount (Calif.) and Westminster College (Utah) as the only small college varsity programs west of the Rockies. Student-athletes will have the ability to earn athletic-based aid, while budgets for the program have shifted from student fees to the athletic department.

"We are excited to have lacrosse move to a varsity sport," Rossi said. I feel this is the best transition for student-athletes and our department. The leadership that Matt Gier has provided will make this a natural transition and will continue to enhance the student athlete experience on our campus."
