My name is Mike Caelwaerts, midfielder on MSOE’s lacrosse team. I am currently a freshman studying Mechanical Engineering. On Friday May 4th, the groundbreaking of the new lacrosse/soccer field took place. As a new and up-coming sport, our MSOE lacrosse team is excited for this newest addition to campus. By having a true home field, we believe it will help us develop our young lacrosse program as well as encourage students to support both the lacrosse team and the soccer team. Another positive of having a field on campus is that it will cut down on our daily travel time for practice. Currently, we have to travel to Hart Park in Wauwatosa which is about 15-20 minutes away for both practices and home games. The new field will also reduce the time commitment of practice which means a lot at a school as demanding as MSOE. On behalf of the lacrosse team, I would like to thank everyone who has made this new field a possibility. We can’t wait to start playing on the field.
