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.

Gilray and Martin Lead Men’s Lacrosse to a Split Decision in Quebec

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

Montreal, QC

The Trent Men’s lacrosse team travelled to Quebec over the weekend to face both McGill and Concordia to round out their regular season.

The Excalibur faced undefeated McGill whom Trent took to overtime in their last contest at home.

McGill bulged twine first but Trent answered 3 minutes later as Travis Szabolcs set Josh Gilray up on the crease to even the score. McGill busted a clearing attempt by Trent and again scored to put them up one. Gilray rolled the crease with minutes left to notch the game at 2. Gilray would go on to have a career and season high 6 goals on the day.

Trent was able to compete fiercely through the first half and entered halftime down one goal. McGill’s veteran experience showed in the second half as they surged in quarters 3 and 4. The game became quite chippy as competitive tempers flared. TU fell by a score of 15-7. Rookie goaltender Austin Cairns (Brampton, ON) stood on his head and made countless acrobatic saves. He was honoured with the player of the game hardhat; a tradition that is usually reserved for after wins. His coaches and teammates felt he deserved it after his performance.

Less than 24 hours later TU was back on the pitch this time versus the winless Concordia Stingers. Trent controlled from the outset and dominated the Stingers putting a damper on Seniors day and beat them by a score of 24-1. Trent goaltender Mitch Martin logged some time on attack in the second half and was able to rifle four goals. For his efforts on the field the previous days hard hat winner Austin Cairns handed the award over to Martin for his performance.

Trent finished the CUFLA regular season a dismal 4-8 but with the win finished in fifth place and will travel to Bishops Saturday Nov.1 for a divisional playoff match-up.

Third year Travis Szabolcs and fourth year Josh Gilray both finished the season with 31 points. This has them tied at 7th in the CUFLA east points race.

Winners of the divisional playoff games will travel to Oshawa, ON Nov.7-9 for the 30th Baggataway Cup National Championship.
