The Adelphi University women’s lacrosse team will be featured on the MTV series MADE tomorrow at 4:00 p.m. The show will include Miranda, a local high school lacrosse player, who wants to become a college lacrosse player.

MTV’S MADE is a self-improvement reality television series broadcast on MTV. The series follows teens who have a goal and want to be “made” into things like singers, athletes, dancers, skateboarders, etc. The teens are joined by a “Made Coach”, an expert in their chosen field, who tries to help them attain their goals over the course of several weeks. MADE documents the process the teens undergo as they try to achieve their goal. Made is currently in its 10th season, and has recently started a series in Canada, France ,Germany and Turkey.

The Panthers are coming off back-to-back National Championships, the first Division II Women’s Lacrosse team ever to do so. The team also returns three of the four major IWLCA Positional Award winners from last season.

The men’s lacrosse program appears poised to build on its recent success with the addition of a 12-player recruiting class that includes a pair of high school All-Americans, four all-state selections and four of the top players from the Denver metro area.

“We’re bringing in guys who are multi-sport athletes – they’re athletic guys, but they are also guys who are really committed and dedicated to being good lacrosse guys,” second year head coach Guy Van Arsdale said. “They’re going to help push our program in the direction we want to go.”

The incoming class includes two attackmen, six midfielders, three defenders and a goaltender. In addition to four Colorado players, eight other states are represented in the class – California, Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, Oregon and Washington.

“Four freshmen out of Denver doubles the amount of Colorado kids on our team in one year,” Van Arsdale said. “We’re very excited about that because it’s very important to us to get the best kids in Colorado to come to CC.”
