The Grove City Wolverine Lacrosse Program was founded in 1993 by a student group of avid lacrosse players seeking an opportunity to continue to exercise their gifts and talents on the lacrosse field. Under the leadership of Evan Feinberg, the Wolverines joined the MCLA, the nation’s premier club lacrosse league, in 2006. In 2008, Grove City made its first CCLA D-II playoff appearance, losing to eventual MCLA D-II Champion Grand Valley State University. In 2009, the Wolverines repeated their playoff push and again met GVSU, this time falling 14-13 in overtime.
2010 brought the Grove City College Lacrosse Program their first MCLA National Tournament appearance. In Denver, Colorado, the Wolverines defeated Western Oregon University by a score of 11-8, before falling to eventual MCLA D-II Champion Saint Thomas in the quarterfinal round.
2011 was a year of promise that quickly faded for GCC. After a promising start of the season with out of conference wins against Missouri Baptist and Tennessee Wesleyan, the team dropped three straight games against Dayton, Briarcliffe, and Davenport. After a cancelled game due to weather at John Carroll, the team continued skidding, dropping games against Carnegie Mellon and Grand Valley State on a five game skid. The Wolverines righted the ship in a 14-0 shutout of MCLA newcomer Southern Connecticut State University, but dropped a final game and their chance at a CCLA playoff bid with an overtime loss against Walsh University.
As the team prepares for the 2012 season, they hope to rebound from last year’s performance and have another strong showing in an increasingly competitive league; culminating in a return trip to the National Championship Tournament in Greenville, South Carolina. With reliable, committed leadership and talented teaching from Head Coach Andrew Stimmel, Grove City Lacrosse is continuing to grow rapidly, while striving to honor God through their efforts.
