William Penn University (NAIA IA) Adds Men's and Women's Lacrosse

Oskaloosa--William Penn Athletics Director Nik Rule is excited to announce the addition of men's and women's lacrosse and men's volleyball to the list of intercollegiate sports the University offers. 

All three sports will begin competition in the 2019-2020 school year. They are the first sports to be added since men's and women's bowling back in 2009-2010; WPU has added or reinstated seven programs since joining the NAIA in 2001-2002.

 "We feel these three intercollegiate sports fit perfectly into our strategic plan for our University and the athletics department," Rule said. "They are quickly-emerging sports in the NAIA with several schools in our conference and our region sponsoring them. It is the perfect time to add them to our department and we have facilities that will immediately be able to accommodate each sport."
