LAX POWER - Davis & Elkins College will celebrate not only the groundbreaking for a state of the-art athletic field that will serve the community and its youth, but also the launch of a men's and women's lacrosse program.

Commenting on the addition of the sport to the College's roster of athletics, D&E President G.T. 'Buck' Smith said, "Since we are going to build an all-surface field, we should have a balance between seasonal sports. Additionally, as we move into the new conference, we want to have as many teams as possible competing."

With the start of the 2013-2014 sports season, D&E will compete in the Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC) Division II which includes colleges from Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee and West Virginia. Several of those colleges have or are planning lacrosse programs, and dozens of other NCAA Division II colleges have lacrosse teams in place.
