Current Status

Willamette University is in the process of adding women's lacrosse as its 19th varsity sport. As we move through the process we will update the status here. If there is enough interest we will sponsor a club team in 2017-18 with the goal of beginning NCAA and Northwest Conference competition in the 2018-19 season.

Sarah Lautenbach was hired as Willamette's first Lacrosse coach in July. She will begin building the Lacrosse program immediately.

Prospective student-athletes interested in becoming a part of the inaugural Bearcat Lacrosse season should fill out a recruiting questionnaire. Keep in mind that at this point there is no one heading up lacrosse, so we are just collecting names at this point.
