Men's lacrosse comes to Post University

Sticks up, fellas! Men's lacrosse has come to Post University! That's right, we've scored our first men's lacrosse team in Post University history, joining our 16 other intercollegiate sports. Jim Griffin was named the program's inaugural head coach.

Lacrosse is widely known around the Northeast, and Post University has had a women's lacrosse team since 2009. So it was an easy decision to add men's lacrosse to our student athletic programs. We hope the addition of men's lacrosse will bring more top-notch student athletes to Post University, while also expanding the use of our new LaMoy athletic field.

We believe Coach Griffin will play an instrumental role in recruiting and developing a winning men's lacrosse team for many seasons to come -- on and off the field. Before joining our squad, Coach Griffin helped guide the launch of the men’s lacrosse program at York College of Pennsylvania. He served as the team's head coach for seven years, ending with a 56-48 record. You can read more about Coach Griffin's background on the Post University athletics website.

Also be sure to watch our video interview with Coach Griffin, where he talks about his plans for creating a winning Post University men's lacrosse team.



The Post Eagles will begin practice in 2013, and gain full varsity standing in 2014. If you're interested in learning more about the team, hit the Post Eagles site for details on Post University's men's lacrosse program, and read our press release announcing the men's lacrosse team.
