Women's Lax Partners with STX

For Immediate Release-
Ann Arbor, Mich. -
The University of Michigan women's lacrosse team has reached an agreement with equipment and apparel manufacturer STX to be one of the squad's major providers of lacrosse-related gear in the coming years.

STX was formed in 1970, and today, is one of the world's leading producers of lacrosse sticks, padding and gloves.  STX, which stands for "sticks", was the first developer of synthetic lacrosse sticks, an innovation that revolutionized the game itself.  The company works with approximately 16 women's and 18 men's varsity-level programs on a sponsorship level.  The partnership with the Michigan women's lacrosse team, a club team, is the first of its kind for the manufacturer.

Joanna Kotula, a product manager for STX's women's lacrosse and field hockey division is looking forward to the new venture, "We are very excited and proud to support the Michigan Women's Lacrosse Club program.  This is the first and only women's collegiate club program with which STX has partnered. The Michigan team's and coaching staff's dedication to lacrosse grass roots and their strong community involvement is an important part of the game and culture and STX embraces this commitment."
