NECC to add men's lacrosse as a conference sport in 2013

The New England Collegiate Conference announced today that it will add men's lacrosse as a varsity conference sport, effective with the 2012-13 season. The addition of men's lacrosse, as well as women's lacrosse which was announced last September, brings to 16 the number of varsity sports the NECC will sponsor in 2012-13.

Five NECC members will sponsor the sport - Becker College, Daniel Webster College, Mitchell College, Regis College and Wheelock College - with competition begining in the spring of 2013 with the conference. The NECC Men's Lacrosse Champion will be determined by regular season play.

"We are pleased to offer Men's Lacrosse as a conference sport beginning in the Spring of 2013," said NECC Commissioner Del Malloy. "With the addition of men's and women's lacrosse, we continue toward our goal to offer varied athletic opportunities and a quality experience to the student-athletes at our member schools."
