BUY TICKETS -- NU Lacrosse at Wrigley Field
EVANSTON, Ill. -- In honor of Saturday night's special appearance at Wrigley Field, Northwestern Lacrosse has partnered with Under Armour, the official outfitter of Northwestern Athletics, to create limited edition Heritage uniforms and gear for the event.
The uniforms recall two defining aspects of the Northwestern Lacrosse program, beginning with the milestone years in the program's history. The inaugural era of NU Lacrosse began in 1982 and lasted until 1992 when the program returned to club status. By 2002, Kelly Amonte Hiller had arrived in Evanston as a promising first-time head coach, and within just four seasons had brought her program from club status to that of NCAA champions -- the start of what proved to be a lacrosse dynasty in Evanston.
In addition to NU's landmark years, the uniforms also bring to life the Northwestern Lacrosse creed, which emphasizes values such as respect, relentlessness, accountability and unselfishness.
The Heritage theme also is reflected in the Wildcats' stick shafts.
Seven-time NCAA champion Northwestern will be hosting upstart USC Saturday night (7 p.m.) in the first lacrosse game of any kind in more than 90 years at the historic ballpark. Tickets are on sale for just $10 and are available by calling 888-GO-PURPLE or by visiting the Wrigley Field box office on game day.
