High Point University is adding men’s lacrosse as its 16th varsity sport, HPU president Dr. Nido Qubein announced as part of $2.1 billion University growth plan. The team will take the field in the 2012-13 academic year. Part of the funding will go towards the new lacrosse stadium.


“We intend to give our lacrosse program all of the resources needed to be one of the best in the nation,” said Athletic Director Craig Keilitz. “We will have the maximum number of scholarships and coaches and we will provide all of the necessary facilities. Vert Stadium is an outstanding venue that is perfectly suited for lacrosse and we are looking at turfing options that will further enhance the facility.”

High Point University is located in the Piedmont Triad region of North Carolina and is a member of NCAA Div. I and the Big South Conference. HPU is a liberal arts institution with over 4,200 undergraduate and graduate students. It is ranked by US News and World Report at No. 3 among Regional Colleges in the South. Forbes.com ranks HPU in the top 7 percent among “America’s Best Colleges.”

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
