Long Island City, NY, March 30, 2010 — Maverik Lacrosse today announced that it will outfit the Mesa State College “Mavericks” Men’s NCAA Division II lacrosse team with equipment, bags and apparel for their inaugural 2011 season. Mesa State College is the first ever state school west of Ohio to add a varsity men’s lacrosse program and has 27 players already committed to play for the “Mavericks” in 2011.
“We went with Maverik because they are as committed as we are to growing the sport of lacrosse beyond the East coast,” said AJ Stevens, head men’s lacrosse coach at Mesa State College. “Maverik’s equipment is on the cutting-edge of technology as well as design and I believe it will give us instant credibility in our recruiting efforts. I can’t say enough for John Gagliardi and Sean Lindsay’s belief in our program.”
The Mesa State College “Mavericks” in the Fall of 2010 will be wearing custom maroon, white and black Maverik Maybach gloves and shoulder/elbow guards. The Mesa State players will also have Maverik’s “Vision” or “Juice” heads to choose from and the H2 or Wonder Boy shafts when they custom build their sticks. Maverik will be providing everything the “Mavericks” need to kick off their inaugural season.
“We are really excited about partnering with AJ and are looking forward to working with him and his coaches to get their program off to a fast start,” said John Gagliardi, President and founder of Maverik Lacrosse. “The future growth of our sport will come through the efforts of coaches like AJ and we will do everything to support him and the Mavericks in their first year of NCAA competition and in the future.”
