The Williams Ephs are the varsity intercollegiate athletic programs of Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts. The school sponsors 32 varsity sports (16 men's, 16 women's), most of which compete in the Division III New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC). The school's men's and women's ski teams and men's and women's squash teams compete in Division I. The Ephs' nickname (which rhymes with "chiefs") is a shortened form of the name of Ephraim Williams, the college's founder. The Ephs' mascot is a purple cow, and their colors are purple and gold.[1] The school's athletic director is Lisa Melendy.[2]

Williams, along with fellow NESCAC members Amherst and Wesleyan, is part of the Little Three rivalry, one of the oldest continually contested rivalries in college athletics.[3][4] It dates to 1899, when the three schools formed the Triangular League for athletic competitions. Today, the majority of the three schools' sports contest the Little Three championship, in which the school with the best record in games among the three is awarded the Little Three title for its sport.[5] Williams's rivalry with Amherst is particularly heated, dating back to 1821, when then-Williams president Zephaniah Swift Moore abandoned Williams to found Amherst College.[6][7] The football game played between the two is known as the "Biggest Little Game in America" and hosted College GameDay in 2007.[8]

Williams has had success in the NACDA Directors' Cup, an annual award for the most successful athletic program in each NCAA division. Since 1996, the year of the award's inception, Williams has won the Directors' Cup 16 out of 18 years (1996, 1997, 1999–2011, 2013).[9][10] For nine of the past ten years (2004–2011, 2013), the college has held a dual #1 ranking in both athletics and academics by winning the Directors' Cup and placing first in the U.S. News and World Report liberal arts college rankings.[11] Alumni of the athletic program include two Nobel Prize winners, 20 Olympians, 19 Rhodes Scholars, four Marshall Scholars, and 16 Fulbright Scholars.[12]

History[edit]

Varsity intercollegiate sports began at the school on July 1, 1859, when Williams was defeated by Amherst 73-32 in the first-ever college baseball game. On May 3, 2009, Williams's baseball team played Amherst at Wahconah Park in Pittsfield, Massachusetts to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the 1859 game. Williams won the game, 8-5, which was televised live on ESPN 360 and on tape delay on ESPNU.[13][14]

Williams was one of the 39 institutions that founded the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) in 1905. Three other NESCAC schools, Amherst, Tufts, and Wesleyan, were also part of the founding group.[15]

Women's varsity athletics began at Williams after the college became coeducational in the 1970-1971 school year. As a result, most of the college's 16 women's sports programs began varsity play during the 1970s,[16] with three exceptions (softball in 1987,[17] ice hockey in 1993,[18] and golf in 2004-2005[19]).

National championships[edit]

From the formation of the NCAA through 1961, Williams allowed its teams to compete in the NCAA postseason. In 1961, the men's basketball program qualified for the College Division tournament. After defeating Rochester (NY) in the first round and Bates in the regional championship, the team advanced to the national quarterfinals against Wittenberg. Williams lost the game, 64-51, and the unruly celebrations of Wittenberg students led Williams administrators to decide the school should no longer compete in national tournaments. When the NESCAC formed in 1971, the league's other ten members adopted Williams's policy. Despite this ban, the women's swimming & diving team won the 1982 and 1983 national championships by qualifying enough individuals to outscore all other teams.[20] The ban was lifted for the 1993–1994 academic year for all sports except football.[21][22][23]

The following is a list of Williams's 30 national championships.[20] Williams's total is second most in the NESCAC, behind Middlebury.[24]

Traditions[edit]

Mascot[edit]

The origin of the college's mascot, the Purple Cow, is believed to be the following 1895 poem by Frank Gelett Burgess:

I never saw a purple cow
I never hope to see one
But I can tell you anyhow
I'd rather see than be one.

In 1907, Williams students began publishing a humor magazine named the Purple Cow, which credited its name to Burgess' poem. Over the following decades, the mascot gained widespread acceptance.[187]

"Yard by Yard"[edit]

The following traditional song was once often sung at Williams sporting events, but its current use is limited.[188]

Yard by yard we'll fight our way
Thro' Amherst's line,
Every man on every play,
Striving all the time.
Cheer on cheer will rend the air,
All behind our men.
And we'll fight for dear old Williams
And we'll win and win again.

The Walk[edit]

The Walk, which began in 1971, is a post-game tradition of the Williams football team. If Williams wins its homecoming football game, played against either Amherst or Wesleyan, the team walks up Spring Street to St. Pierre's Barber Shop. There, they enjoy cold beverages and cigars and subject underclassmen players to embarrassing haircuts. The Walk was named the best post-game tradition in America by Sports Illustrated in 1992.[189]
