It's Official: D1 Women's Lax Coming to Arizona State

Arizona State University Athletics Director Ray Anderson formally announced today that the Sun Devils are adding Division I women’s triathlon and women’s lacrosse as ASU’s 24th and 25th varsity sports.

The Sun Devils will become the sixth Pac-12 program to add women’s lacrosse when they begin play in the 2017-18 school year, meeting the minimum for the conference to become an automatic NCAA qualifier. The other programs — Stanford, USC, Colorado, Oregon and Cal — are currently members of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) for women’s lacrosse.

“If things work out, and Ray (Anderson) has assured me things will work out, the Pac-12 will have a championship and automatic qualifier from women’s lacrosse,” senior associate athletic director Scottie Graham told the State Press.
