The Comanches, Apaches and Kiowas, the "horsemen tribes" of the Texas plains, did not play lacrosse.

The Caddoes in east Texas were peaceful farmers. The Hueco and Tonkawa in central Texas were afraid of the Comanches, and the Karankawas on the Gulf Coast were too busy inventing smelly mosquito repellents.
??????????

Why lacrosse is not indigenous to Texas?   ;)
That's what I thought, but didn't want to assume :). Besides- football is KING in Texas-at least that's what my brother-in-law always told me:)

sounds good. i expect schools to start adding it to their club offerings as more and more high schools offer the sport as well.

Title 9 will have a big impact as schools convert to D3 from club. Chapman has a very strong club men's team, but they are staying club at this time. We usually have around 40-50 players. Last year (2011) the women won the nat'l club division 2 title, and this year they went to the club D1 finals. The men have finished in the top 4 at the finals of club D1 for the past 5 or so years.

It is an exciting sport that I am starting to learn. Very fast paced.

It is! The high school I coach at wants to add it in the next year or so. I would think that colleges with wrestling could offer lacrosse to women. Do you know the break down of men's vs women's teams in D30

Illinois Wesleyan announced today that they will be adding men's lacrosse in the Spring of 2014.  A women's team will start competition the following year.  The CCIW looks to add lacrosse as an official conference sport soon.

  That's interesting as North Central has a women's team. I wonder if they drop a men's sport to add lacrosse or if they add men's lacrosse plus one other women's sport.

I have very mixed feelings about lacrosse.

My older son fell in love with the game and attended a camp.  He found a sympathetic teacher (with a lacrosse background) and founded the high school lacrosse club team his junior year.  They were awful - David and his childhood chum Chris (who also went to the camp) were the only ones with ANY lacrosse experience.  They not only lost every game; they were never even competitive in any game.  In David's senior year, they were marginally better: they won three games.  In the first tournament game, they faced a team they had beaten, 8-2, with David scoring 5 and assisting on all three others.  Knowing David was the threat, in the first thirty seconds a goon took out his knee with his stick.  Game over.  David is one tough kid, and stayed in, but every time he tried to shoot, his knee buckled: he had both assists, but they lost 4-2.

Has lacrosse ever found a solution to goons?  The kid got a two-minute penalty; but even if he was thrown out of the game, an unscrupulous coach merely needs to send a totally superfluous player in to do the 'goonery'.

Lacrosse is big in the high schools now and my son's school will be adding it soon. We've even begun to teach it at the junior high as part of our physical education program.

Still not the big explosion I'm waiting to see. With budgets tight, the big growth of the sport could take awhile.
