Director of Athletics Mark Brown has announced the expansion of the Pace Athletics Department with the additions of Women’s Lacrosse and Women’s Field Hockey. These new programs will allow more female athletes to participate in Pace’s sports program and will ensure that the department is more closely aligned with federal Title IX regulations. The expansion of the Pace Athletics sport opportunities will coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Pace University Pleasantville Campus as well as the revitalization of the University’s Pleasantville Campus beginning this fall.
The new women’s lacrosse program will begin a national search for a head coach later this month with the first year of the program slated to begin in the spring of 2015. A national search for a head coach for the women’s field hockey program will commence in early 2014 and competition will start in the fall of 2015. Construction of the new multipurpose turf field will begin in spring 2015 and is scheduled to be completed by August 2015.
