SUNY Adirondack adds lacrosse to men’s intercollegiate athletic programs
(QUEENSBURY, NY- Jan. 4, 2018) – SUNY Adirondack will add men’s lacrosse to its intercollegiate athletic programs beginning in Spring 2019.
Lacrosse is one of the fastest-growing sports in the United States, with more than 750,000 children currently playing the sport across the country and more than 36,000 intercollegiate lacrosse student-athletes.
“Many of the high schools in our service area host successful lacrosse programs, and this will give the student athletes that make up those successful programs an opportunity to compete locally at the next level,” said SUNY Adirondack Athletic Director Jonathan Sisk.
THE SUNY Adirondack lacrosse team will compete in the NJCAA Region III and the Mountain Valley Collegiate Conference.
The college expects to hire a head lacrosse coach in Spring 2017 to begin building the program and recruiting qualified student-athletes.
“We thank the SUNY Adirondack Student Senate and Dr. Kristine Duffy for their support of the addition of this program,” Sisk said.
