Pittsburgh is getting another lacrosse team.
Pittsburgh, July 29, 2009 – Lacrosse, a sport that’s been steadily gaining in popularity in western Pennsylvania, is coming to La Roche College as a varsity sport in fall 2010. Athletic Director Jim Tinkey said that he is currently looking for a men’s lacrosse coach to build a team that would be ready to play next year.
La Roche is essentially St. Vincent North. Small D3 school decent but not awe inspiring facilites. Respectable academics if you are staying in the Pittsburgh area after graduation.
Depending upon who they hire as a coach however, it will give a lot of local kids another opportunity to play in college at the NCAA level and there is nothing wrong with that.
Another Pittsburgh product returns to the city tonight for the BIGGEST show of the summer
