NEW YORK, NY – Cascade and Maverik Lacrosse have signed the University of Michigan men’s lacrosse program to a four-year equipment deal that will put each brand’s most advanced equipment into the hands of every player on the team. Entering its fourth season as a Division I program, the team is poised for its most successful season yet competing in the NCAA.
When the Wolverines hit the field this February, they’ll be sporting custom ROME NXT protective gear with maize and blue M3 gloves and using Maverik’s newest innovative lacrosse heads, the Optik and the Tank. With team GPA well above a 3.0 and five players recently named “Big Ten Distinguished Scholars,” the program will also begin a new tradition in 2015 as it entrusts Cascade ‘R’ technology to protect its student-athletes on the field.
“This partnership is exciting. Cascade and Maverik are industry leaders in lacrosse, and their approach to the game mirrors ours. Their emphasis on passion and tradition is a perfect fit for Michigan,” said head coach John Paul about the multi-year deal. A graduate of the University of Michigan himself, Paul enters his eighteenth season at the helm of the men’s lacrosse team. Lacrosse Magazine named Paul “Man of the Year” in 2011 after successfully leading the program to NCAA Division I status.
“The rise of the Michigan men’s lacrosse program continues to be fueled by an unyielding passion for the game that we at Cascade and Maverik have truly come to admire,” explained Sports Marketing Coordinator, Kevin Simmons. “We’re thrilled to put our newest products into the hands of the Wolverines and join in the rich athletic tradition at the University of Michigan.”
