Ohio named lacrosse 'hotbed' after magical runs by Buckeyes, Ohio Machine in 2017


Ohio named lacrosse 'hotbed' after magical runs by Buckeyes, Ohio Machine in 2017
Dec 19, 2017, 1:42pm EST

A magical run by Ohio State University's men's lacrosse team and a championship by the Ohio Machine propelled the state into a "hotbed" for the sport in 2017, according to a magazine.

USLacrosse Magazine recently featured all the positive things happening for lacrosse in Ohio, including the opening of Fortress Field in Obetz, the nationís first professional lacrosse-focused stadium. It's the home of the Machine, which won the Major League Lacrosse championship over the summer.

Columbus, for several years, has been interested in boosting its standing in the lacrosse community.

The Buckeyes made it into the sport's Final Four this year, but lost in the semifinals. Ohio State "became one of the most fun-to-watch teams in NCAA Division I menís lacrosse" this year, the magazine wrote.

Elsewhere, the publication mentioned the Lacrosse Communities Project that's happening in Cleveland that aims to expand the reach of U.S. Lacrosse programs into underserved urban populations.

And the University of Akron, Kent State and Ashland University all are adding women's lacrosse programs.

The Ohio High School Athletic Association for the first time this year sanctioned boys' and girls' lacrosse, including state tournaments. The championships were held at Ohio Wesleyan in Delaware.
