The NCAA Division I Men's Lacrosse Committee has selected Indianapolis, Ind., and College Park, Md., to serve as hosts for the 2013 Division I Men's Lacrosse Quarterfinals. The NCAA and Indiana Sports Corp jointly made the announcement at its annual meeting on Tuesday. Notre Dame and the Indiana Sports Corporation will host quarterfinal match-ups in Lucas Oil Stadium May 19, while the University of Maryland will host games at Capital One Field at Byrd Stadium on May 18. "We are extremely pleased to bring this marquee event to Indianapolis," said Susan Williams, Indiana Sports Corp president. "Having the NCAA headquartered in Indianapolis and their commitment to showcase Indianapolis by awarding our experienced team with events of this magnitude continues to return huge dividends. "Lacrosse is obviously a growing sport in our city and our state, and this announcement should excite a very passionate lacrosse community." Indianapolis becomes the first site not along the east coast to be awarded pre-determined games of the NCAA Division I Men's Lacrosse Championship. The semifinals and championship game of the 2013 NCAA Division I Men's Lacrosse Championships will be held at Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field (May 25-27). "2013 will be an exciting year in men's lacrosse as we take one of the quarterfinals to a newer grassroots area in the Midwest, and we return one to the state of Maryland, a place widely known for lacrosse," said Tony Seaman, Division I Men's Lacrosse Committee chair and special advisor to the director of athletics at Towson University. "The committee felt moving one of the quarterfinals to a different geographic part of the country would aide in growing the sport of lacrosse, which is one of our most important goals. Both quarterfinal sites will play the games in top-notch facilities, and have staffs that are experienced and well-equipped for putting on a great championship event for all involved. We're looking forward to what is sure to be a memorable lacrosse weekend in both College Park and Indianapolis in 2013."
