"It's my pleasure to welcome Army women's lacrosse to the Patriot League. They are joining a very distinguished and competitive group of institutions, and we look forward to them joining our competition in 2016."
Kerstin Kimel, Head Coach, Duke
"I'd like to officially welcome the Army Black Knights to the ranks of Division I women's lacrosse. It is only fitting that our nation's first, oldest and in some ways our most prestigious, military service academy is finally adding the sport of women's lacrosse. Here's hoping that their add is the start of another big boom for our sport. The Blue Devils look forward to making their first trip to Army in the future. Go Black Knights!"
Jenny Levy, Head Coach, North Carolina
"Army, thank you for adding women's lacrosse! This is the fastest growing sport in the nation, and you're part of the growth. We're so excited to add another DI school, so welcome to our community. We can't wait to see you on the field. I also hope I'm there to see the first Army-Navy game. Go women's lacrosse!"
Kelly Amonte Hiller, Head Coach, Northwestern
"I'd like to pass along a big congrats to West Point for adding women's lacrosse. It's an amazing thing for the institution. They obviously have a great tradition of building leaders for this country with great character, and I know their women's lacrosse program will be an incredible success. It's also great for the expansion of the sport. It shows how exciting our game is. Congratulations, best of luck and we look forward to seeing you."
Julie Myers, Head Coach, University of Virginia
"I want to be one of the first people to welcome Army to the women's lacrosse scene. We're so excited to have another great school host an awesome sport. Army has done a great job on the men's side with lacrosse, and we're very excited to get another great program coming out of Army in the next couple of years. It's great timing for Army to add another program to their athletic department. Women's lacrosse is growing by leaps and bounds with more and more high school kids who are looking for great programs to play for at exceptional universities. Certainly Army fits both of those molds. What a great education, experience and career that follows. I think it will present an awesome opportunity for young women."
