. . . and if you had Boston University as the next set of shoes on the dance floor, come collect your prize at the booth.
B.U. is building a new field and they were, like, "Well, let's have some teams to actually play on this thing." Seems like logical reasoning. Here's the moneyquote from the press release:
"Along with the development of New Balance Field, which enhances student life by virtually doubling the amount of field space on campus, BU announced the addition of women’s lightweight rowing beginning with the 2012-13 season and that men’s lacrosse will elevate from a club sport to varsity status beginning with the 2013-14 season. Men’s lacrosse will play home games on Nickerson Field, while women’s lightweight rowing will call the DeWolfe Boathouse home.
This marks the first time the roster of sports at BU has expanded since 2004, when women’s ice hockey was added, and brings the total number of sports offered to 25, 11 men’s sports and 14 women’s sports."
