Athletic Legacy

A RICH TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE

In 1920, the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference was formed and Gustavus was one of eight charter members. Since then, the Gustavus athletics department has grown from six men’s-only varsity squads to 23 male and female varsity teams. Golden Gustie teams have captured 257 MIAC titles, highlighted by unprecedented success in such sports as men’s tennis—which has won 313 consecutive conference matches; and women’s hockey—having won 16 league titles since the sport was adopted in 1999.
