From the Cordish Lacrosse Center at Homewood Field, members of the Hopkins community and the Big Ten gathered to make a monumental announcement earlier today. After the Johns Hopkins University President, the Director of Athletics for Hopkins, and the Big Ten Commissioner announced Hopkins’ affiliate membership to the Big Ten, Head Coach Dave Pietramala discussed his assessment. Petro speaks about the growth of lacrosse and the fact that Hopkins had to grow with it.

Today, teams need a backup plan, an answer, in case their season hits a skid, which are conference playoffs with an AQ. The Big Ten Lacrosse conference will begin in 2015. Watch the press conference in its entirety by clicking here.
