[MICRO]GRANTS: Women's Lacrosse

The University of Scranton women’s lacrosse team has established itself as a championship contender in the Landmark Conference over the past four seasons. The Royals qualified for the Landmark Conference playoffs in three of those seasons and have posted back-to-back seasons with 10-or-more victories.

Playing in a region with some of the best lacrosse in the nation, as well as a conference that annually boasts nationally ranked opponents, Scranton has developed a program capable of competing at the highest levels. In its 13 years of existence, the women’s lacrosse team has posted a winning record nine times and won 10-or-more games eight times.

Over the past five seasons, 17 women’s lacrosse players have earned all-conference honors. In the program’s history, one player, Liz Baumbach (’03), earned All-American honors while the team has seen players earn all-region honors eight times. Success isn’t limited to the field, however, as Bridget Lee (’03) earned Academic All-American honors as well as a prestigious NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship.

You gift supports equipment and uniform upgrades, travel and meal expenses, and a semi-annual spring break trip to play competition from around the country, as well as helping the women’s lacrosse program strive to reach new levels of success.

“Our team appreciates the continued support of our donors,” said head coach, Cindy Wilson. “With your help we are able to continue to make the University proud.  Through these funds we continue to grow in the sport of lacrosse through training upgrades, new equipment, and increasing our ability to recruit.”
