HAMBURG, N.Y. -- Hilbert College will add men’s and women’s lacrosse to its intercollegiate athletics program starting in the 2010-11 academic year, announced Hilbert President Cynthia Zane, Ed.D., and Director of Athletics Richard Walsh. It’s the first sport added at Hilbert since the college began men’s volleyball in 2002.
