Athletics at William & Mary
Few colleges in America can boast of the combination of athletic and academic excellence that is found at the College of William & Mary.
Each year, more than 500 Tribe student-athletes, competing on 23 Division I teams, prove that it is possible to simultaneously excel at the highest levels of athletics and academics. William & Mary Athletics fields Division I teams for both men and women in basketball, cross country, golf, gymnastics, soccer, swimming and diving, tennis, and indoor and outdoor track and field. There are also field hockey, lacrosse and volleyball squads for women of the College, while there are two additional sports (baseball and football) for men.
"Exercise and recreation ... are as necessary as reading; I will say rather more necessary, because health is worth more than learning. A strong body makes the mind strong."
—Thomas Jefferson, W&M Class of 1762
