Varsity Sports[edit]


Cross county and track[edit]

The Grizzly track and cross-country teams are coached by Damon Martin, winner of 20 National Coach of the Year awards. ASU's Men's cross-country team was the first team in history to record a perfect score at the National Championships in 1992. This was the first year Adams competed in NCAA Division II, after previously competing in the NAIA. The women's cross-country team won 15 National Championships between 1992 and 2009.


The football team under the leadership of Head Coach Marty Heaton runs a very aggressive defense that allowed only 10 passing touchdowns in 2010. The football locker room is state of the art with electronic displays for film viewing and visual management of team roles and positions. The weight room is available for all Grizzly sports team athletes and was custom designed for use in national advertising campaigns by the company that donated the weightlifting equipment.
