Wilkes University began playing women's lacrosse at the varsity level...
during the 2003 season. During their first five varsity seasons the Lady Colonels have showed great signs of improvement.
The Lady Colonels played their first varsity contest on March 15, 2003, when they dropped a 21-8 decision at Elizabethtown College. After falling in their first eight contests, Wilkes rattled off three wins in their final five contests.
On April 15, 2003, the squad won their first varsity game by topping MAC rival Moravian College 8-7. The Lady Colonels then concluded their inaugural season with two consecutive wins. They earned their first home win by disposing of FDU-Florham, 14-4, on April 26, 2003. They followed that up with a 10-9 win over Centenary College at Ralston Field.
The 2006 season was also a special one for the Lady Colonels. They set a new school record by winning four times during the campaign, topping College Misericordia, Centenary, Moravian and Cedar Crest.
