   ASU’s Lacrosse Club became official early this semester by giving students another option to stay fit and stay active. Lacrosse Club President Dusty Ortiz said they hope to work with governing bodies to find the best league. When they do they will begin to compete against other universities’ lacrosse teams. “Currently there are 14 members,” Ortiz said.  “Which is enough to field a team.”
   Though they have enough members for a team, Ortiz said they are always looking for more people to play and they are hoping to set up scrimmages in the near future. Encouraging students to stay motivated, fit and healthy throughout the semester betters their physical attributes and it can also better their mental attributes, improving their academic performance naturally. “It’s another sport to help get students involved and active,” Ortiz said. “Another thing I’ve seen happen when students join a team is they get the urge to do better academically.” 
   The Lacrosse Club held its first meeting in the CHP and will continue to meet there. The times of the meetings are a work in progress. “We’re currently working on times,” Ortiz said. “But as soon as we get everything hammered out we’ll be sure to let students know.”  The Lacrosse Club sets its goals to encourage students to stay healthy and stay involved in the ASU community by providing the opportunity to play another form of sport. 
“The fact that there is such a large variety of sport clubs here at ASU really gives us students a large horizon of choices,” junior Deven Leonard said. “It gives us more range to discover what we’re good at and not so good at.”
   Students have the choice to join the Lacrosse Club to compete, interact, get fit and learn valuable team skills that are applicable to day-to-day life, and create yet another tight family bond in the ASU community. “I’m just glad that we have the opportunity to bring a new club sport to ASU,” Ortiz said. “And to give our fellow students another way to enhance the college experience.”
