Thanks to all of the team players and to our amazing president, Maddi Corry, for such a great season! Our team did very well with the amount of new players we have and we hope to grow much more next year, playing with the amount of charisma as we always have. Don’t forget about our team cookout this upcoming Friday!
This year is a new season! We have many new players, a new coach, and new opportunities to strengthen our team! We lost many seniors and currently have one junior but that isn’t keeping us from working hard at practices and playing the same competitive teams we always have with the same determination and effort under Butler University’s name. Good luck to the team this year and Go BU!
Many new players are starting Butler Lacrosse this spring! After such a great fall semester we look forward to a great new season with wins! Our beginning schedule for practice is Tuesdays and Thursdays in the Tennis Bubble. Send out new president Maddi Corry an email if you would like to play!
Also, here is our current schedule for this year:
What a great end to the season. Butler Women’s Lacrosse made it to playoffs. We lost the first game to Lake Forest by a close four points, 8-12. Then we played Wheaton and won! We placed 5th overall. Great job to all of the seniors, we will miss them!!
What an amazing weekend for the Butler Women’s Lacrosse team!
The team played Eastern Illinois with a win of 16-2 and played an amazing game against St. Mary’s with a close score of 7-11.

Seven Women’s Lacrosse Players Named to All-Academic Team
Wednesday, June 22, 2011
Seven members of the Butler women’s lacrosse team have been named to the 2011 U.S. Lacrosse Women’s Collegiate Lacrosse Associates (WCLA) All-Academic team.
Maddi Corry, Elizabeth Erb, Mary-Bridget Adkins, Kelly Marie Borter, Clare Hubbard, Megan Chadwick and Stephanie O’Brien were among 135 women honored for playing in a WCLA program while achieving a grade point average of at least 3.7 on a 4.0 scale.
Adkins was the club president during the 2010-2011 school year; Erb is president for 2011-2012.
“Women’s lacrosse is one of many club sport teams composed of dedicated Butler students who work hard each week planning and organizing practices and tournaments, all while achieving exceptionally high standards in the classroom,” said Eric Kammeyer, Butler assistant director of recreation-intramurals/club sports. “Women’s lacrosse has been extremely successful in recent years [due] in part to their devoted student membership, who run fundraising events and clinics for local youth, and to their alumni base, who volunteer their time and money. Each year the students, along with their dedicated coach, Joe Harsh, set a higher goal on and off the field and find a way to achieve it.”
Butler has had 31 women’s lacrosse players selected for this honor since the team started as a club sport in 2006. The team finished the 2010-11 season with an 8-6 overall record (5-2 in the Women’s Collegiate Lacrosse League) in competitions against schools such as Purdue, Ball State and Ohio State.
Club sports are student organizations recognized and advised by Butler’s Recreation Department and the Club Sports Council. Most club sports practice 2-3 times a week and then either host or travel to regional or national competitions. All of them have callouts in the fall to inform and accept new membership.
