Quality Built Homes Inc. Vice President Rodney Gertz, second from left, presents a $5,000 check to benefit scholarships and the launch of womens lacrosse at the College of Southern Maryland. Due to phenomenal support from community partners, CSM has been able to launch lacrosse at the NJCAA (National Junior College Athletic Association) collegiate level in Southern Maryland, with a mens team set to play this spring to be followed by a womens team in spring 2015. Quality Built Homes Inc. has supported both mens and womens lacrosse at CSM in addition to its support for scholarships. Our goal is to begin recruiting in 2014 in order to stand up a NJCAA womens lacrosse team for the 2015 season, said Lead Director of Student Life and Athletics Michelle Ruble.
