Athletics

Compete Ferociously

We take athletics seriously around here. We like to run, jump, hit, dunk, lift, dive, throw and anything else that keeps us active and moving. Mountaineers compete in Division I athletics across 24 programs, as well as two premier sports. And each and every one of us is filled to the top with bona fide, blue and white, busting-at-the-seams Mount Maniac school spirit!

Division I

One out of every four students here competes as an athlete on one of our 24 Division I athletic teams. Some teams are just breaking onto the scene and some have a proud history of success. From the basketball court to the track there's always something to cheer for as the Mount - a member of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference - competes against some of the best athletes in Division I.

Premier Sport: Men's Rugby

Our men's rugby team is the perfect example of what makes Mountaineers so special. Competing at the premier sport level, our men’s rugby team pushes through challenges of endurance and mind, joins together to serve others and each other, and wins matches – a lot. They give their heart and soul to the game with some players even traveling to New Zealand to train. THAT is what the Mount spirit is all about!

This is Emmit

He’s our campus mascot and head of the Mount Maniacs. You won’t have to look too hard to see Emmit all over this mountain – hiking, camping, participating in service trips, and supporting Mount Athletics! (With a head that big, he’s not hard to spot!)
