Through the fall and winter seasons, Saint Leo athletics has
enjoyed unparalleled success in competition and in the classroom,
and excitement is building heading into the winter championships
and spring seasons!
Saint Leo men’s cross country won the school’s first NCAA
regional championship this fall, while sophomore women’s cross
country runner Colett Rampf earned All-American honors – the first
for a Saint Leo cross country runner! Men’s soccer won its second
Sunshine State Conference regular season title in the past three
seasons, and several Saint Leo men’s and women’s swimmers have
already qualified for the NCAA Championships this March. Head men’s
basketball coach Vince Alexander recently won his 300th career
victory, while improvements to the Marion Bowman Activities Center
– home of Saint Leo basketball and volleyball teams – coupled
with a raucous student section have made it one of the toughest
venues in all of Division II.
The spring seasons have opened with softball picked to win the
Sunshine State Conference, America’s toughest Division II
conference, while both men’s and women’s tennis were ranked no. 1
in the South Region in the preseason polls. Men’s and women’s golf
will each challenge for regional supremacy and a shot at the
national title this spring. Baseball is primed for a return to the
NCAA tournament, and the Lions’ home field of Southard Stadium has
also received improvements this spring.
Most importantly, Saint Leo’s nearly 350 student-athletes are
getting it done in the classroom as well, recording a 3.25 GPA in
the Fall 2015 semester.
