Board of Trustees votes to add new sports at NMU

MARQUETTE — Several new additions to Northern Michigan University’s sports lineup were selected Friday by the Board of Trustees.

At Friday morning’s meeting, trustees voted to include men’s swimming and diving, as well as women’s golf, as varsity sports starting next year. They also voted to add women’s lacrosse and men’s soccer as sports at NMU as soon as possible, with the goal of starting these in the fall of 2016.

ABC 10 will have more information on the new additions tonight.
