For Visiting Teams: Directions to Davidson and game field
About Davidson College. Davidson is a private college of approximately 1,600 undergraduates, ranked #7 among liberal arts colleges by 2004 America's Best Colleges and US News and World Report. Founded in 1837 by the Presbyterian Church, Davidson College is one of the smallest NCAA Division I colleges in the nation. Davidson fields 22 varsity sports (including a D-I Women's Lacrosse team) and 11 intercollegiate club teams. Davidson Menís lacrosse plays on both grass and astroturf fields (for inclement weather and night games).
About the team. After a period of dormancy, men's lacrosse returned to Davidson college in 2003. As a college club team, Davidson joined the Southeastern Lacrosse Conference (SELC) of the US Lacrosse Men's Division Intercollegiate Associates(MDIA) for the 2004 season. College club lacrosse follows the game rules, player eligibility guidelines, and conference administration established by the MDIA, and largely follow NCAA guidelines for men's lacrosse. As a college club team, however, we are largely self-funded -- league fees and other expenses are provided by money raised from dues, fund-raising drives, college support, and other sources.
Our players, like the Davidson student body, come from all over the nation; although many of our players are from the south, we have players from New England, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Ohio, and many other established lacrosse regions and rising hotbeds. Our team captains are Evans McGowan, Geoff Fehling, and Garen Ridel; the club president is John Hoke; the vice-president is Wes Cobb, and the secretary is Ryan Robertson.
