New “Big Ten Women’s Lacrosse Conference” Features Maryland Women’s Lacrosse, Northwestern And Penn State, Who Combined Have Won 19 Of The 32 NCAA Championships


Big Ten Women's Lacrosse Maryland

Big Ten women’s lacrosse will feature teams that have won 23 national championships and 19 of the 32 NCAA championships, including eight of the last nine. Maryland has won 11 national championships, with 10 NCAA crowns, including seven straight from 1995 to 2001 and most recently in 2010. Northwestern has claimed seven NCAA titles, highlighted by five consecutive from 2005 to 2009 and most recently in 2012. Penn State has earned five national championships, including NCAA titles in 1987 and 1989. The Terrapins, Wildcats and Nittany Lions earned berths in the NCAA Women’s Lacrosse Championship this season. Penn State advanced to the quarterfinals, Northwestern reached the national semifinals and Maryland was edged in triple overtime in the national championship game.
“To be a part of a conference from the ground up is exciting for our program and we are anxious to put our thumbprint on Big Ten lacrosse,” said Maryland women’s head coach Cathy Reese. “It is going to be a highly competitive league and with former Terps coaching at five of the six institutions, I believe there is a lot to be excited about as we make this transition in 2014-15 and begin a new chapter in the rich history of Maryland women’s lacrosse.”
With the addition of Maryland and Rutgers in 2014, the broad-based athletic programs of the 14 Big Ten institutions will sponsor nearly 350 teams in 42 different sports with almost 9,500 student-athletes, more than any other conference. The Big Ten currently features 25 official conference sports, 12 for men and 13 for women, but is set to add men’s ice hockey as the 26th conference sport in the fall. Men’s and women’s lacrosse will become the conference’s 27th and 28th official sports in 2014-15.

NCAA Lacrosse: Northwestern Women’s Lacrosse Officially Joins “Big Ten Women’s Lacrosse Conference” With Maryland, Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State And Rutgers For 2014-15 Season


Northwestern Women's Lacrosse Joins Big Ten Lacrosse Conference

The Big Ten Conference announced Monday the adoption of men’s and women’s lacrosse as the conference’s 27th and 28th official sports beginning in the 2014-15 academic year, ushering in a new era for Northwestern’s seven-time NCAA champion women’s lacrosse program.
The Big Ten women’s lacrosse conference will consist of Northwestern, Ohio State, Penn State, Michigan — which will debut its varsity women’s lacrosse program in the 2014 season — and Big Ten newcomers Maryland and Rutgers. Big Ten rules allow for a conference championship when six institutions sponsor a program in any given sport.
Big Ten Commissioner James E. Delany and the Conference also announced that Johns Hopkins University has been accepted as a sport affiliate member for men’s lacrosse only beginning in 2014-15, the first such affiliation of its kind in the history of Big Ten athletics.
“This is an extremely exciting announcement for the entire lacrosse community,” said Northwestern head coach and five-time National Coach of the Year Kelly Amonte Hiller. “Gaining the support, stability, TV coverage and brand association of one of the most prestigious college conferences in the country is an enormous step forward for our sport. We are thankful to Commissioner Delany for his leadership in making Big Ten women’s lacrosse a reality and look forward to competing for a Big Ten championship in 2015.”

NCAA Lacrosse: “Big Ten Conference” Officially Announces Addition Of Men’s & Women’s Lacrosse


Big Ten Men's Lacrosse Official Announcement

The Big Ten Conference announced today that men’s and women’s lacrosse will become the conference’s 27th and 28th official sports and that Johns Hopkins University has been accepted as a sport affiliate member for men’s lacrosse only beginning with the 2014-15 academic year.
“We are excited to announce the launch of Big Ten men’s and women’s lacrosse and the addition of Johns Hopkins as a sport affiliate member,” said Big Ten Commissioner James E. Delany. “Johns Hopkins is an outstanding institution with a legacy of success in men’s lacrosse that is simply unmatched in intercollegiate athletics. Lacrosse is an emerging sport among our current schools and is a long-held passion among our East Coast institutions. With the addition of Maryland and Rutgers in all sports and Johns Hopkins for men’s lacrosse, we will have the requisite number of institutions to make men’s and women’s lacrosse official conference sports, building upon our tradition of broad-based sports competition. We look forward to the start of the first Big Ten men’s and women’s lacrosse seasons in 2015.”
Big Ten competition in both sports will feature Maryland, Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State and Rutgers, with Johns Hopkins participating in men’s lacrosse and Northwestern competing in women’s lacrosse. Big Ten rules allow for a conference championship when six institutions sponsor a program in any given sport.
The six programs that will comprise Big Ten men’s lacrosse boast 56 national championships, with schools that have competed for more than a century. Johns Hopkins has been an independent since 1883 and leads all schools with 44 national championships. Maryland has claimed 11 national titles, while Rutgers has also won a national championship. The Scarlet Knights launched men’s lacrosse in 1887, followed by programs starting in 1913 for Penn State, 1924 for Maryland and 1953 for Ohio State. Michigan instituted a men’s lacrosse program in 2012. Maryland, Ohio State and Penn State each qualified for the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship this season, with the Buckeyes advancing to the quarterfinals.

NCAA Lacrosse: Johns Hopkins Men’s Lacrosse To Join “Big Ten” Conference Along With Maryland, Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State And Rutgers


Big Ten Lacrosse

The Blue Jays would join Maryland, Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State and Rutgers presumably after the 2014 season, when Maryland and Rutgers are slated to leave the Atlantic Coast Conference and Big East, respectively.

After 130 years as an independent in men’s lacrosse, Johns Hopkins will be  joining the Big Ten. An announcement has been scheduled for Monday morning when the university  will confirm the move, according to sources and a published report.

The news conference will be held at 11 a.m. at the Cordish Lacrosse Center on  Johns Hopkins’ campus in Baltimore.

Big Ten and university officials would not comment on the move.

The addition of Johns Hopkins will give the Big Ten its sixth member – a  requirement for the conference to earn an automatic qualifier to the NCAA  tournament.

The announcement comes 17 days after a seven-member special committee  recommended May 17 that the university seek conference affiliation after the  team had spent the past 130 years as an independent.

During an ensuing conference call with athletic director Tom Calder and coach  Dave Pietramala, Pietramala had said that he would like the Blue Jays to begin  conference play in 2015.

Johns Hopkins’ move is the latest in the conference realignment wave in men’s  lacrosse. In 2011, Syracuse announced that it would leave the Big East for the  ACC, and Notre Dame followed the Orange in September. The month before the  Fighting Irish’s announcement, Loyola, which captured the national championship  in 2012, said it would switch from the Eastern College Athletic Conference to  the Patriot League for the 2014 season.

In November, Maryland and Rutgers announced that they would join the Big  Ten.
