Non Scholly Men's Lacrosse
We've had a fairly decent Lacrosse teams for about 5/6 years. We were best under Chris Park but he left for UTEP. We won the LSA championship in 2011 and went to Nationals. Last season we were rebuilding with a very young team. Our biggest competition (not surprisingly) in the Lone Star Alliance, is UT.

New season has begun with a win over Texas A&M.

Next match is 2/8 vs TCU. We hold a 5-1 record vs the Frogs.

RE: Non Scholly Men's Lacrosse
Lacrosse is growing quickly - seeing more and more teams starting in the Southeast at the NCAA level. Want to say that a few SoCon and Atlantic Sun schools are pushing it further along and the leagues have a cooperative with one of the leagues running a men's league and the other a women's league featuring member institutions from the two, plus an affiliate or two.

While the group in San Marcos is a club squad, you are definitely seeing an increase in the amount of club programs in this 'neck of the woods'.

Believe that the University of Texas will become first Texas school to start playing D1 lacrosse - men or women - some point in the next 3-4 years based on what Chip Brown is saying.

I played club lacrosse at App State, fun times. We scheduled games ourselves based on who could offer a post game keg party.

After watching the video, we definitely have one of the nicer lacrosse fields in the area.

Isn't lacrosse considered like a rich kid's game?

I'm 100% ignorant on the sport other than it involves a stick with a net on it and a ball. Supposed to be pretty violent, though I bet they won't let you use the stick as a weapon.

I don't know that it's necessarily a rich kids game on its merits, but as the youth leagues typically make you buy all the equipment up front, it's a rich kid game by default. I loved playing and could never the called a rich kid but often joke it's a game that lets upper class kid hit each other while avoiding getting hit by better, poorer athletes.

Kid 2 houses up from me is on the TXST Lacrosse team and I wouldn't call them rich. Comfortable? Sure, but not rolling in greens $$$$.

Years ago Lacrosse was a rich kids sport. Truthfully, I think Hockey was the same way. Both have changed recently
