Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing sports across youth, high school, and collegiate levels in the United States. Its rapid rise in popularity has led to lacrosse becoming the newest sport sponsored by the Ohio High School Athletic Association as an “emerging” sport during the 2016-17 school. The OHSAA held its first state tournament for lacrosse in 2017.

This trend is also reflected at Beaumont as lacrosse is the school’s youngest athletic program holding its inaugural season in 2002 as a club activity. Lacrosse at Beaumont became a varsity sport the next season in 2003. Lacrosse has become one of the most participated in athletic programs at Beaumont.
