History[edit]

Over the last three seasons, the men's rugby team, men's tennis team and women's basketball team have enjoyed the greatest success, earning 5 conference championships, and 1 runner-up finishes in that time frame. In addition, the men's rugby, women's basketball, men's basketball, men's tennis and sailing teams have all competed in national collegiate championship tournaments.

Although the sport does not permit easy comparisons with more traditional sports, the sailing team (co-ed) has been very successful against national powerhouse sailing programs.
