History[edit]

Over the last eight seasons, the men's rugby team and the women's basketball team have enjoyed the greatest success, earning 7 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.

The teams are listed below with their 3-year record, winning percentage, number of athletes, and any notable achievements.
