Good evening, ladies and gentlemen! Hopefully by now, you have heard the great news. But if you have not…
HAMPTON UNIVERSITY is officially adding men’s lacrosse as an NCAA Div. 1 program beginning play in 2016!
This is the first and only HBCU to add men’s lacrosse as a varsity program since Morgan State dropped their program in 1981. This is a huge moment for the school, for the men and women that were involved in this coming together since the club team first began a few years back, and for the sport itself.
Coach Lloyd Carter, who was a member of the Morgan State program was one of the founding members of the club program at Hampton, has been given the green light to continue to lead this program as they embark in this historic journey. He has always maintained his involvement with the sport, and has been instrumental in providing many young men and women the opportunity to experience and benefit from lacrosse as so many of us have. So a big congratulations goes out to him for all of the efforts that have led to this point!
