The Northern Michigan Men's Lacrosse team is a student ran competitive collegiate lacrosse club. The team competes in the Great Lakes Lacrosse League (GLLL). In 2014 the team finished conference play in the GLLL in 6th place (of 40) with a record of 9-2-1. GLLL officials selected NMU to compete in the Division 1 bracket in the regional post season tournament. The 'Cats finished post season play with a 2-2 record. It is a year round sport as the team competes in typically 3 fall semester tournaments, recently at NIU, UW-Madison and hosting one tournament at home. As the snow melts in late March during winter semester the 'Cats face off in league play. Opponents in the GLLL come from all over the Midwest: UW-Madison, UW-Milwaukee, UW-Whitewater, Northwestern University and Holy Cross. Club lacrosse travels late winter semester around the Midwest typically Wisconsin, the lower peninsula, and Illinois.
The club is not limited to theses locales. Each season they choose who they will play and where to travel to. The fate of the 'Cats lacrosse team is in both the hands of its leaders and members. This is a self motivated team that loves the sport and competition. The team believes in commitment to serve one another as well as the Marquette community, respect for nature and brotherhood. If you are interested in joining the club lacrosse team contact the team president and head over to practice either at the recreational sports fields (corner of Wright & Lincoln) or in the dome. Practice is typically 3 times a week.
