About the Lacrosse Teams

Lacrosse was introduced at UNH in 1931 by athletic director William Cowell as a fitting substitute for spring football practice. Cowell arranged for hockey coach Ernest Christensen ‘23 to spend a week at Harvard to practice with their squad so he could then teach the game to the Wildcats. Christensen did a surprisingly good job and within a few years, the sport was firmly entranced as one of the most popular with the players on the athletic program. Within ten years of its introduction, the Wildcats lacrosse team was so good they even beat Harvard three years in a row. The game was eliminated as a varsity sport in 1996 at the recommendation of the Athletic Advisory Committee.

Women's lacrosse was elevated from club sport to varsity in 1971. They won the NCAA championship in 1985.
