Lewis University (D2 IL) Adds Women's Lacrosse

Romeoville, Ill. - Lewis University Director of Athletics Dr. John Planek announced on Monday (July 10) the addition of women's bowling and women's lacrosse to the NCAA Division II offerings of the Flyer Athletics Department, beginning in 2018-19.

 The addition of these two teams increases Lewis' scholarship sport offerings from 20 to 22. Since 1980, Lewis has competed as one of 15 current member institutions of the Great Lakes Valley Conference.

"We are very excited to announce the addition of these sports," Planek said. "Women's lacrosse is played in nearly 70 high schools in Illinois and we would be one of the few institutions offering scholarships.

"It is one of the fastest growing sports in the country and particularly in the Midwest."
