NCAA Division III web site

The college experience is a time of learning and growth – a chance to follow passions and develop potential. For student-athletes in Division III, all of this happens most importantly in the classroom and through earning an academic degree. The Division III experience provides for passionate participation in a competitive athletic environment, where student-athletes push themselves to excellence and build upon their academic success with new challenges and life skills. And student-athletes are encouraged to pursue the full spectrum of opportunities available during their time in college. In this way, Division III provides an integrated environment for student-athletes to take responsibility for their own paths, follow their passions and find their potential through a comprehensive educational experience.

Over 15,000 men and women compete in NCAA-sponsored championship events each year.

NESCAC first permitted NCAA team participation in the 1993-94 academic year
Williams and NESCAC did not allow NCAA postseason team championship competitions until the 1993-94 academic year, when a three year-trial period was introduced.

However, Williams won the 1982 and 1983 women's swimming & diving titles by qualifying enough athletes on an individual basis to out score all of the other teams entered.

Prior to the 1993-94 academic year only Eph individual athletes could participate in NCAA post-season chamionships.

Williams has hosted seven NCAA Championship Finals on campus since 1993:
1993 -- Men's Soccer
1994 -- Men's Swimming & Diving
1995 -- Women's Swimming & Diving
1995 -- Men's Soccer
1998 -- Men's Tennis
1999 -- Men's Golf
1999 -- Women's Soccer

Williams has won more NCAA Division III Championships in more sports (10) than any other school.

Willaims won the first NCAA Division III Championship offered in women's swimming and diving (1982) and women's rowing (2002).

Williams was the first NCAA Division III women's tennis team to repeat as NCAA champions (2001 & 2002) and they repeated again in 2008 & 2009. Winning again in 2010 and 2011 tied Williams with Emory for most titles in a row (4) and giving the Ephs the lead in overall titles in women's tennis with 6. In 2013 the Ephs raised their streak of NCAA women's tennis titles to a record six in a row and their leading total of overall NCAA titles to 8.

Though the Eph women;s tennis team streak ended in 2014, they won the 2015 NCAA title and boast the most title won in women's tennis (9).

Williams won the first NCAA DIII Rowing title offered for Women in 2002 in Indianapolis. The Ephs then became the first NCAA women's crew team to win eight NCAA titles in a row -- 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2013. Overall the Eph women rowers have captured nine NCAA titles.
