9 omen I he University of Michigan Women ' s Lacrosse club had been established for almost a decade, and it looked like the team was here to stay. In its first years, membership was small and attendance dwindled. But with each passing year, attendance and membership both increased and grew until the 1994-95 season when the team even had to turn prospective members away. Although social activities and school may have interfered, attendance at practices also increased. Four years ago, the club was begging members to travel to tournaments, but the past season had enough committed women that there was enough for two teams of women to travel. Being a member of a club team could be trying at times. Events and practices were canceled at the last minute, leadership and coaching changes abounded, and equipment was sparse. However, the women on the lacrosse club were warned before they joined about the instability of the organization. Consequently, the women that did join and stayed with the team, did so due to their love of the sport. As the team ' s treasurer and ' 94 captain, Kate DeRosayro said, " You do not join this team for glory or recognition, you join for the love of the sport. " Each year, players on the team committed themselves to organizing the team and its events: a necessary, but often mundane duty that kept the club afloat. Michigan ' s team usually played other club teams in the Big Ten, and throughout the M idwest. Because Michigan was one of the few schools in the Midwest to attract many students from the East coast, the women ' s lacrosse team was loaded with a lot of experienced players. As a result, the team was able to rely on their talent and win many of their tournaments. Ashley Johnson, club president and ' 94 captain, said, " We do well despite the lack of organization and we have a good time in the process. " During the 1 994- 1 995 season, the team joined the Women ' s Collegiate Lacrosse League which greatly expanded the number of teams they could play. The new league meant a more organized season and a unified league. The winners of each of the divisions within the league played each other in a final tournament in the spring. The team ' s vice president, and ' 94 captain, Laura Forman, concluded, " We ' re not used to playing with a goal in mind, so the final tournament should add incentive and make this year even more exciting.
