Are they adding both men's and women's teams? North Central currently has only a women's team.
CCIW schools Augustana and Elmhurst will join Carthage with lacrosse teams as well.
Interesting with the MIAA forming their own conference, as three of those teams currently play in the Midwest Lacrosse Conference. What would have been a 14 team conference next season (2012-2013), is already going to be down to 11 with the MIAA schools going out on their own. This will probably be the norm as more and more schools add lacrosse to the list of varsity sports and the traditional conferences begin to sponsor it. The Northern Athletic Conference will have four with Aurora, Benedictine, Concordia Wisconsin and MSOE.
There are surely more to come in the next few years.
I am not sure if anyone mentioned this, but IWU will be adding lacrosse to their sports line up in 2014. My daughter is pretty excited, as she is a lacrosse player. Someone mentioned that lacrosse is picking up like wild fire, it certainly is and it's a fun sport to watch.
Men's fall 2013 and women's fall 2014
Fall? will it be a club team? Most schools have lacrosse in the spring.
