Marquette University will add men's and women's lacrosse to its NCAA
Division I varsity sports offerings, Athletic Director Steve Cottingham
announced Thursday. Both teams will begin competition in spring 2013.
This is a huge step for our region as Marquette will become the closest NCAA D1 program to Des Moines (308 miles vs 382 miles to Notre Dame). The potential to send Iowa laxers to D1 camps in Milwaukee is huge and the scouting possibilities for leagues in our region will drastically increase.
I will be looking into establishing a relationship with the school ASAP.
