Coach's Description

We are looking for student athletes that are committed to excellence in the classroom as well as winning a championship on the field. Spring 2014 will be our first year as a NCAA DIII program, however, we feel that given the school, support, talent, and motivation it will not take us long to be competing at a high level.

It is primarily an undergraduate, liberal arts institution, accompanied by the AACSB-accredited Boler School of Business.

The university has been ranked in the top 10 universities of U.S. News & World Report annual guide "America's Best Colleges," in the Midwest Master's Universities category for twenty-three consecutive years.
