Xavier Announces The Creation Of A Women’s Lacrosse Program

The Big East lacrosse family got a little bit bigger this past week.

Back on Sunday, Xavier announced that they would be adding a 19th Division 1 sport to their list of sponsored teams as they made it public that the Musketeers will begin playing women’s lacrosse in the spring of 2023. Women’s lacrosse will be Xavier’s first new Division 1 sport since adding track and field in 2005.

The Musketeers will take the 2021-22 school year to hire a coach and do all that kind of thing to get the program up and running and then begin fall practices and their first official season in the 2022-23 school year.
