Trent University Athletics welcomed the expansion of a Women's Lacrosse Program in 2013. The women's LAX team will look to build upon their first year success in 2014. 

Peterborough has been recognized as the Lacrosse capital of Canada and it is Trent's goal to make this statement true at the University level as well. Having both a men's and women's lacrosse team will give Trent a competitive edge in the LAX world and build on the great lacrosse viewership here in Peterborough. With the newly renovated stadium and grass playing fields, Trent has the facilities to make this happen.

The Trent Men's Lacrosse team is looking to continue the great success of the program in the upcoming 2014 season. Our LAX boys finished the 2013 CUFLA season with an 11-8 quarter final playoff loss to eventual semi finalist, The Queens Gaels. Great job boys!  

Trent Lacrosse has a bright future!

If you are interested in joining the Men's or Women's Lacrosse programs for the 2014 season please fill out a recruitment form on the right and a member of our coaching staff will contact you.

Rollercoaster Season Continues for Men's Lacrosse

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

Ottawa, ON

Less than 24 hours after a big win over division rival Queens the Excalibur were set to faceoff against CUFLA upstart program Ottawa U.

Ottawa would score first before Trent would answer with 3 of their own with markers 1 from Senior midfielder Brett Snell (Orangeville, ON) and 2 from freshmen Thomas Hoggarth (Selwyn, ON). Both teams struggled to get things going on the mudsoaked field at Gils O Julien Park, which The Gee Gees call home. Looseballs were constant struggles for both teams but the Gee Gees were able to capitalize with home field advantage in this mudbowl. Trent would exit the first quarter up by a score of 3-2.

The Gee Gees would explode in the second quarter for 4 goals and take a 6 – 4 lead into halftime. Trent’s offensive woes continued in the second quarter as they only managed to score 1 goal in the final 40 minutes. Field conditions were less than ideal but the coaching staff did not use that as an excuse.

“Both teams played on the same field. We simply did not show up to play today, we did not execute on offense, and Ottawa stuck to their gameplan, hats off to them. At this level if you do not bury your chances you will not win. The offensive output we had against Queens was nowhere to be found tonight and that is something our O guys have to sort out,” said Head Coach Geoff McKinley.  “The defense again did their job holding another team to under 10, but penalties, and lack of focus in the offensive end seem to be our Achilles heal. We have to find some consistency.”

The loss moves Trent to a “frustrating” 3-7 on the season, and the win also moved Ottawa to the same record. Trent would have the tiebreak as they had a larger margin of victory in the first contest.

Trent travels to Montreal next weekend to take on 11-0 powerhouse McGill, who Trent took to overtime earlier in September; and will play 2pm Saturday at Molson Stadium. Then will play struggling 0-10 Concordia the following day.
