Chicago Lacrosse News


By Steve Wizniuk

On the shores of Lake Michigan sits an often-overlooked lacrosse community in the shadow of its Midwestern neighbors. Lacrosse in the city of Chicago has been thriving in small pockets for decades, but it is finally ready for its renaissance. Powell Lacrosse would like to pay tribute to the Chicago lacrosse community as we continue on our mission to explore the field.

The Windy City is the best kept secret in lacrosse. It is home to some of the best programs, coaches, and players in the country, but is somehow still overlooked by those out east. That is changing at a rapid pace.

One Chicago team that has been successful for years has been the Northwestern women’s lacrosse team. The Wildcats have won 7 National Championships and are the only Division 1 lacrosse team in Illinois. Northwestern has dominated college lacrosse for the past few decades as they have made the NCAA playoffs every year since 2004. Head Coach Kelly Amonte Hiller came to Chicago in 2001 and transformed the team from a Midwestern afterthought to a lacrosse dynasty.
