The purpose of this study was to determine if participation on an intercollegiate men’s lacrosse team would impact the academic performance of students. Data was gathered from the 2012, 2013 and 2014 academic years and compared through the use of a dependent t-test. The study showed no relation between participation on the men’s lacrosse team and positive or negative performance in the classroom. Research in the area of the impact of athletics on academic performance should continue as there are many other factors that could be considered in this area.
