Press Releases

 

MUSTANG10 07 for emailMarygrove College recently announced the addition of their fourteenth sport, Men’s Lacrosse, as part of a growing athletic program that is set to join the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletic’s (NAIA) Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) next year. Men’s Lacrosse will be added to the slate of offerings on Marygrove’s northwest Detroit campus in the 2012-13 academic year with competition beginning in Spring 2013.

Considered an emerging sport in the NAIA, Men’s Lacrosse comes to the College as a varsity program. Due to its continued growth, the NAIA will consider lacrosse for conference and national championships in the near future.

In the meantime, Marygrove will explore possible affiliations with the Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association (MCLA) and the Central Collegiate Lacrosse Association (CCLA). Gaining membership in these associations will allow student-athletes to compete for conference and national championships against some familiar opponents within the region and state.

The new program will be complimented by the College’s new outdoor complex that opened for play last year. Currently home to its men’s and women’s soccer programs, the outdoor complex sits on the east side of campus and is home to many unique features.

“We are very pleased to announce the addition of Men’s Lacrosse at Marygrove College,” said athletic director Dave Sichterman. “The addition of the sport highlights Marygrove’s growth and belief that Men’s Lacrosse needs an added presence in the City of Detroit. We are excited for the many student-athletes who will have another outlet to continue their Lacrosse career.”

Marygrove College is currently seeking a coach to guide the new program. Interested candidates should visit the employment tab on College’s website - www.marygrove.edu - for more information.
