Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing sports in the nation, at the youth, high school, and collegiate levels. In the past few years, many southern universities have added varsity and club-level Lacrosse teams to accommodate the demand for the sport. As Lacrosse gains popularity and momentum in the South, universities will need to be better equipped to support its development. Until then, men and women who have already developed a passion for Lacrosse rely on the support of donors who see its potential.
Four years ago, students at Ole Miss began the Women’s Lacrosse Team with only 14 athletes. The team is a member of the Women’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association (WCLA) at the Division 1 level. We are also apart of the Southeastern Women’s Lacrosse League (SWILL) playing SEC teams such as Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, Alabama, Conference USA's University of Central Florida, and many more.
Although our team is extremely new, we are already gaining recognition as a standout Club Lacrosse Team. In 2012, we had two women make the All SWILL team, and our goalie was named Goalie of the Year. We placed third in the league behind Florida and Central Florida. Our record was 14-6, and we were ranked 33rd nationally for the 2013 season and were a team to watch out for at the nationals by WCLA.
In the fall of 2012, our goalie Sarah Wheat and her brother John (a coach for the Men’s Lacrosse team) had their lives taken by an intoxicated driver, this devastating event brought great pain to our team. Needless to say our team was not the same after losing Sarah. We managed to complete the season with a record of 4-7, with one of our players making the All SWILL team. SWILL so greatly named the Goalie of the Year Award after Sarah bringing gratitude to the Ole Miss program. Each spring, the Women’s & Men's Ole Miss Lacrosse teams host the Wheat Memorial Tournament in Oxford, Mississippi honoring Sarah and John.
In addition to being dedicated Lacrosse players, our teammates stay involved with campus life as members of sororities, academic All-Americans, ROTC, local church members, and many more organizations that are offered at Ole Miss.
