Men's lacrosse

The men’s lacrosse team has also begun practice, even though their official season does not begin until the spring semester. Team spokesperson, Josh Harmelink, says the team plays twice during the fall semester, at a weekend of exhibition games in St. Louis, where lacrosse teams and clubs from across the country meet, and at Parents’ Weekend.

The men’s team, which is also a club sport at Dordt, includes twenty-eight players who pay $120 per year to play, in addition to supplying their own stick. Most have never played lacrosse before coming to college.

“It’s pretty physical and challenging, but we’ve been pretty competitive,” says Harmelink. Each year they’ve played, the team has advanced to the playoffs before being eliminated.
