Women's Lacrosse

The University of Dubuque Women’s Lacrosse team, recently added as a varsity sport, began intercollegiate competition in the spring of 2013. Lacrosse is a relatively new sport in the Midwest, we encourage you to join and help establish the Spartans as a winning lacrosse team.

We welcome those who are new to the sport to step out and see what this high-paced game is all about. Expand your experiences and come see lacrosse which combines the discipline of many sports.

The Spartans competed in the Midwest Women's Lacrosse Conference (MWLC) in the Spring of 2014 before joining the Conference Colleges of Illinois and Wisconsin (CCIW) in 2015. Current CCIW teams include Augustana College, Carthage College, North Central College, Elmhurst College, Illinois Wesleyan University, Carroll University, and in 2018 the University of Chicago will join.
