Coach's Description

Davidson is a highly selective independent liberal arts college of approximately 1,850 students located 20 minutes north of Charlotte in Davidson, North Carolina. Since its establishment in 1837, the college has been consistently regarded as one of the top liberal arts colleges in the country. Our lacrosse program was founded in 2003 and competes in the MCLA DII. We are still building but are committed to growing the sport of lacrosse to higher levels and winning at whatever level we compete. Being a Wildcat lacrosse player involves playing with and against a very high level of talent while being able to balance time commitments with a rigorous education. We compete both in practice and in games with the same core philosophies adopted by the greater Davidson Athletics program: - Have Fun - Get better - Play to win - Make every play count We are committed to growing this program to new heights and supporting talented student athletes. Please contact us directly if you have any questions about Davidson College and our Lacrosse program.
