Lacrosse to Become a Club Sport at Lyndon Institute
August 28th, 2019
Lyndon Institute Athletics is excited to announce that beginning in the Spring of 2020 club lacrosse will be added to its programming with the goal of becoming a Varsity sport after two years as a club sport. In aligning with their mission to help every student discover their individual academic, artistic, technological, and athletic aptitudes, club lacrosse will allow for several of their student-athletes to achieve that mission.
The inaugural Club Lacrosse teams, girls and boys, will be led by Rebecca Lowe, Judd Levine, and CJ Mackinnon, who are all accomplished in the sport. Coach Lowe played women’s lacrosse at the University of Maryland and won three national championships. Coach Levine played men’s lacrosse at Curry College and has coached in Vermont and Massachusetts, while Coach Mackinnon played at Springfield College.
LI’s Director of Athletics and Activities, Eric Berry, said “I’m excited for the future of this new athletic program and for our kids who haven’t had this opportunity before. Lacrosse is the fastest-growing sport in the US and we’re happy to start this program with the goal to be extremely competitive soon.”
Lyndon Institute’s Head of School Twila Perry remarked, “I am pleased that we are able to offer our students this opportunity. We need to be mindful of changing student interests and work to stay current with new and upcoming sports. I appreciate the work Eric has done to make this possible.”
With this change in the athletic programming, current varsity-level sport, Ultimate Frisbee, will become a club sport and maintain some but not all of its past schedules.
