College to Elevate Lacrosse to Varsity Status in 2016
Moravian will elevate its men’s and women’s lacrosse teams from club to varsity status beginning in 2016. Since 2011, both the men’s and women’s teams have competed in the National College Lacrosse League for club teams. Previously, Moravian’s women’s team completed at the Division III varsity level from 2003 to 2010. The men’s team squad competed on the varsity level from 2004 through 2010.
President Bryon Grigsby ’90 called the move “another step in Moravian College’s growth and revitalization.” “There is a growing interest in playing lacrosse among college-bound students in the mid-Atlantic region,” he explained. “We intend to attract those student-athletes with a transformative quality education and an outstanding intercollegiate sports experience.”
According to Director of Athletics Scot Dapp, the College expects to have head coaches in place by fall 2014.
