While the number of participants in lacrosse continues to increase rapidly, the number of college programs adding teams has remained relatively stagnant.

So it’s noteworthy whenever a college adds a program.

Former St. Andrew’s coach Mike Lawson was named as the first coach in program histroy.

Here’s more info on Mount Olive’s addition of lacrosse.
