Director of Athletics Troy Tucker has announced that Northampton Community College will add cross country and men's lacrosse to their intercollegiate athletic program for the 2013-2014 season.
"We are very excited to be adding sports to our program," stated Tucker. "In a very short time, we have been able to establish ourselves as one of the top Division III junior college athletic programs in the country. The addition of cross country and men's lacrosse shows the commitment that the college has to intercollegiate athletics and the belief in the positive aspects that a well-rounded program can bring to the campus and the community."
Cross Country, which will sponsor both men's and women's teams, will begin competition this fall as a member of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) and compete in Region XIX and the Eastern Pennsylvania Athletic Conference (EPAC).
Men's Lacrosse will open in Spring 2014 as a NJCAA member and join Brookdale Community College, Del Tech Terry, County College of Morris and Union County College in Region XIX.
The new sports join men's soccer, women's volleyball, golf, men's basketball, women's basketball, tennis, baseball and softball as intercollegiate offerings at Northampton.
