“Towson University is excited to bring an outstanding event like the women’s lacrosse national championship back to Baltimore,” said Mike Waddell, Towson’s director of athletics. “Our campus has hosted this event three of the last five years. Once again, we will roll out the red carpet for the NCAA and many fans that will help us sell out Johnny Unitas Stadium as we create and outstanding environment for the championship weekend.”
