Pittsburgh Women's Lacrosse


The Lady Panther Lacrosse Club has been a part of the University for almost 20 years and has built itself into one of the premier programs in the country that competes against excellent teams from all across the country. We play against other members of the Women’s Collegiate Lacrosse League (WCLL), members of the Women's Collegiate Lacrosse Associates (WCLA), as well as varsity teams from the Division I, II, and III levels. The games against other club teams in our league count in the statistics that determine whether the team receives an invitation to the regional playoffs each year. We have attended the WCLL regional tournament  every year for the past ten years. The women won the WCLL championship in 2006, 2013 and 2014 In 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008,2011, 2013 and 2014 the team attended the WCLA national tournament. In 2014 Pitt won the National Championship for the first time. We look forward to a successful 2015 season and another run at a national championship!

While the team concentrates on winning games, we are about having fun on and off the field as well! We are open to girls joining our team until January, when our roster is due. The team practices at least twice a week and requires additional conditioning.
