175th Anniversary | Athletics

Athletics have played an integral role in Mount Union's history, and will continue to do so into its future. By the 1890s — merely a few decades after Mount Union's founding — football, baseball, and basketball were all regularly played on campus. Since those early days, Mount Union athletic teams have won 17 national championships, 72 Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) regular season championships, and 175 OAC conference tournament championships.

Today, campus is currently 41% student-athletes who participate in at least one of 24 NCAA Division III teams, thus illustrating the presence of athletics remaining a constant at Mount Union.
