Lady Chanticleers sign 10 for upstart lacrosse program

Coastal Carolina University head women’s lacrosse coach Jaime Sellers has announced the program’s second signing class, this one comprising 10 student-athletes who will join the team in fall 2013 in preparation for the program’s second season in 2014.
