Denison has earned the Dennis M. Collins North Coast Athletic Conference All-Sports Championship, outdistancing Wittenberg and Ohio Wesleyan for this year’s title.
But that’s only part of why this news is special.
First, this is Denison’s 12th All-Sports Championship since the first trophy was won in 1985-86. Not only is that a record in the North Coast league—it’s an extension of the college’s own previous record of 11 wins, set in 2008-09 when Denison tied for the title with Ohio Wesleyan.
Second, and more importantly, this dozenth title demonstrates Denison’s commitment to a broad-based athletics program and to excellence across all 23 sports for men and women.
Well done, Big Red. It’s been an amazing year.
