About W&M Athletics

- "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

Athletic Excellence
• The 2007-08 season was another strong year for the College, as Tribe teams added four more CAA titles to bring the school’s all-time league-leading total to 92. W&M also had eight different program’s represented at the NCAA Championship level in some capacity.

• The men’s cross country squad won its eighth consecutive CAA crown in the fall, while the women’s cross country team won its fifth straight. The women’s track and field team won its seventh CAA Championship in the last eight years, while the women’s tennis team added its 20th all-time CAA crown in the 23-year history of the league during the spring

• In total, W&M had five conference players of the year, five conference scholar-athletes of the year, 18 All-Americans and 100 athletes earned all-conference honors in their respective sports during the 2007-08 season.

• Individually, the women’s tennis doubles team of Megan Moulton-Levy and Katarina Zoricic garnered All-America honors by advancing to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Doubles Championship. Moulton-Levy also became the first Tribe athlete and only the fourth in CAA history to win conference player of the year honors for a fourth time. Katie Radloff, who garnered CAA Swimmer of the Year and Swimmer of the Championships honors for the second straight season, earned a spot in the NCAA Swimming Championships for the second time in as many years. Christo Laundry earned All-America honors for the third time in cross country and also won the CAA Individual Championship. Women’s soccer player Claire Zimmeck garnered CAA Player of the Year honors for the second straight season and was a semifinalist for the MAC Hermann Trophy. Additionally, Emily Anderson earned All-America honors with a fifth-place finish in the 1,500m, marking the best Tribe finish in 14 years.

Academic Success
• The Tribe’s athletic accomplishments do not come at the expense of its student-athlete’s academic responsibilities, as William and Mary had six teams rank in the top 90-100 percentile of their sport for Academic Progress Rates among all Division I programs and received a Public Recognition Award by the NCAA.

• In a recent NCAA survey on graduation rates, William and Mary athletic teams set the standard for academic excellence – 12 teams had a 100 percent graduation success rate.

• The College’s Athletics Department showed a Graduation Success Rate (GSR) of 95 percent among its student-athletes who entered school on athletics scholarships in the 2001-02 athletics year in data released by the NCAA in 2008 compared to an overall Graduation Success Rate of 78% for all Division I institutions.

• The Federal Graduation Rate for our athletes is 86 percent, the highest in the Colonial Athletic Conference and other Virginia four year institutions.

• There have been 46 student athletes elected to Phi Beta Kappa in the past ten years. Four Rhodes Scholars were W&M student-athletes.

• In 2002-03, the CAA created a Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award in each of its sports, and not surprisingly, W&M has set the pace with 27 winners in the six-year history of the award. Additionally, three Tribe standouts were named as the CAA's Overall Scholar-Athlete of the Year (Adam Hess in 2004, Keith Bechtol in 2007, and Ryan Overdevest in 2008).

• In 2008-09, 12 student-athletes earned national recognition for their academic achievements in addition to numerous all-district, region, conference, and state honors. Included in that dozen were Abby Lauer, a third-team CoSIDA/ESPN the Magazine Academic All-American in women's soccer, and Dani Collins, an NSCAA First-Team Scholar All-American.

• The men's gymnastics team won its fourth CGCA National Academic Team Title in 2007-08, posting the top overall GPA across all levels of collegiate gymnastics.
