HBCU Lacrosse Consortium Announces Inaugural HBCU National Lacrosse All Star Game
 

WASHINGTON (October 30, 2013) – The Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCU) Lacrosse Consortium will be hosting the  first annual HBCU Lacrosse All Star Game at Howard University’s Greene Stadium on Sunday, Nov. 17, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Visiting high school students will play at 11 a.m., and the college students will begin playing at 1 p.m.

The HBCU Lacrosse Consortium consists of representatives from Hampton University, Howard University, Morehouse College and Morgan State University who have combined to grow the game by showcasing current lacrosse athletes from each of these institutions.

The HBCU Lacrosse Consortium is reaching out for participation from athletes at other HBCU institutions such as Alabama State University, Bethune-Cookman University, Bowie State University, Delaware State University, Florida A&M University, Lincoln University, Norfolk State University, North Carolina A&T University and North Carolina Central University.

The HBCU All Star Lacrosse Consortium is working closely with other lacrosse advocates to provide prospective HBCU students/lacrosse athletes an opportunity to play the sport at the university/college level. Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing sports in the United States. Lacrosse programs have the opportunity to add to the diversity of student-athlete recruitment. There has been a strong response from HBCU lacrosse programs as well as the prospective HBCU’s athletes who will be participating in the HBCU Lacrosse All Star Game at the high-school level.

Registration to participate in the HBCU All Star Lacrosse Game is located at http://hbculacrosse.com.  Admission to this event is free.
