Question about Men LAX (MCLA v NCAA)

Submitted by meechiganroses on April 20th, 2010 at 9:37 AM

I've started to follow the men's LAX team this year while waiting for football and basketball to start again. I'm an out of state fan (PA), so I don't get all the details and I'm late to the party--but, the men's team was on a ridiculous winning streak. When I looked on ESPN to see where they would be ranked, thinking it was #1, they weren't even listed! After a site search, I learned in a useful post (…)they are competing in the MCLA rather than the NCAA.

My question, as I don't think there has been an update to that post for some time, has the University found funds to support a varsity team? Is there a process in play at the moment? Can the team schedule exhibition games against 'Cuse and UVA to test the water? Any updates would be great!

Side note, though the football and basketball team have had some struggles and let downs, there have been some really successful teams at Michigan. I just want to jump on the bandwagon here and say great job to the gymnastics, baseball, LAX, and softball teams for their outstanding effort and ability to make me realize that not ALL UMich teams are in a funk.
