Under the steady guidance and watchful eye of Terry Driscoll, the William & Mary Athletics Department has solidified its standing as one of the nation’s preeminent broad-based programs. As Driscoll enters his 21st year as athletics director, he has overseen an unprecedented era of improvement in terms of funding and facilities while also maintaining the university’s rich history of producing well-rounded student-athletes.
Driscoll oversees a program that is committed to balancing academic demands with athletic success. One of the department’s stated goals each year is to finish among the top 100 in the annual Director’s Cup rankings, which has happened 11 times under Driscoll's watch. Additionally, W&M has ranked as the highest Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) school on 11 occasions during his tenure, including each of the past three years.
During the last 13 years, W&M teams have combined to win a total of 59 CAA titles, as the Tribe added championships in football, baseball, women’s tennis, men’s cross country, women’s cross country, men’s swimming, women’s swimming and women’s soccer (regular season) in 2015-16. Overall, no institution in the CAA can claim more all-time league championships than the 131 W&M has earned.
