FREDERICK, Md. - Frederick Community College will no longer offer men's and women's lacrosse as part of its athletic program.
FCC started the men's and women's lacrosse teams in 2015 but recently had difficulties fielding a full roster for both teams.
"This was a very tough decision for us, especially because coaches Todd Hawkins, Dale Kowatch, and Kim Lenta worked passionately and diligently to establish and maintain our lacrosse teams at FCC," said Associate Vice President/Dean of Students Jerry Haynes. "We thank these coaches and all our lacrosse players for committing themselves to the sport. Due to the roster challenges, we decided it is in the best interest of the College to discontinue the lacrosse program and focus on the other sports that make up FCC Athletics."
The men's lacrosse team was unable to compete in 2018 due to the lack of a full roster. The women's team did compete in 2018, compiling a 3-9 season record.
FCC is a member of the Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference (MD JUCO) and National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA). The College competes in men's and women's basketball, men's and women's soccer, baseball, softball, and volleyball.
