Face-off! Lacrosse comes to CSU
The newest addition to the Department of Athletics is men’s lacrosse. The sport is the fastest growing in the nation among high school student-athletes, and CSU head coach Dylan Sheridan used the 2015-16 year to build his program. Sheridan and his coaching staff currently feature a 34-player roster, which represents 17 states and Canada. Student-athletes have come from as far away as California, Colorado, Florida, Minnesota and Nevada, allowing CSU to build a national profile in the student body. “I was instantly struck by the vibrancy of the University when I stepped onto campus,” Sheridan said. “It’s my goal for the lacrosse program to reflect Cleveland State, both in our play and in our service to the community. I could not be more excited to be at CSU and grow the sport at its highest level.”
The lacrosse team will play its first-ever game on Saturday, Feb. 4, at 7 p.m. against the University of Michigan under the Krenzler Field dome. The complete schedule, roster and ticket information can be found at CSUVikings.com.
CSU is also adding women’s track and field to its athletics roster. Head coach Madeleine Outman says she is looking forward to building a successful program to provide competitive opportunities for women.
