RELEASED: March 9, 2009
DANVILLE, KY—Centre College has added men's and women's lacrosse to its roster of intercollegiate athletics, bringing the total number of athletic offerings to 23. Competitive play will begin in the fall of 2010.
Centre will join only one other Kentucky college offering intercollegiate lacrosse, and will be the only Kentucky college participating in the sport in Division III.
“Adding men’s and women’s lacrosse at Centre College once again shows that we are leaders in the state and region when it comes to NCAA Division III athletics," says Brian Chafin, Centre's athletic director. "This will open up more national recruiting opportunities and allow students who want to play Lacrosse to attend a top liberal arts institution while continuing to pursue their athletic interest.”
