Great Lakes Valley Conference Logos
Rockhurst University is home to the Hawks, the university’s athletic program. After a generation in the NAIA, Rockhurst University joined NCAA Division II in 1999, as a founder of the Heartland Conference. In 2005 it moved to the Great Lakes Valley Conference. In July 2009 the Mid–America Intercollegiate Athletics Association rejected a proposal for Rockhurst to join the conference to compete with geographically closer teams. The MIAA said it currently did not want to expand beyond 12 teams.
Rockhurst has 14 varsity athletic teams, including men’s and women’s basketball, soccer, golf, lacrosse and tennis, men’s baseball, women’s softball, women’s cross country and women’s volleyball. The school also offers two club sports: tennis and the Spirit Squad, composed of the Dance Team and the co-ed cheerleading squad. It is a popular joke around campus that the Rockhurst University football team has remained undefeated since 1949 (the year that the team was dissolved).
