Athletics & Recreation

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, premier, club and intramural sports, and some of us just compete against ourselves to break personal goals. 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 22 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 Mountaineers compete 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!)

Club Sports

If you're looking to compete at a higher level, our club sports teams are primarily student-run and travel to compete against other schools' club teams regionally and nationally. Mount students currently run over a dozen successful club sports teams - from the ice hockey team, field hockey team, and dance team, to our highly recognized equestrian team and more.

However you like to stay active, there are plenty of activities, sports, and games to keep you moving at the Mount.

  • Intramural sports

    In this play-hard, play-fun league, teams compete against other on-campus teams to win the coveted championship t-shirt (we’re such a spirited school we even compete with fantasy teams).

  • Fitness and wellness

    From outdoor Fitcamp and indoor cycling, to Zumba and yoga, we have lots of classes; we can even personalize your routine to help keep you well and reach your goals.

  • Aquatics

    Our pool hosts open swim times and fitness classes for both Mount students and for local youth/community members.
