Through 1925, Allegheny teams had been referred to as Hilltoppers, Methodists, Timothians (in deference to College founder Timothy Alden), and the Blue and Gold. In April of 1925, a group of Allegheny students published the first issue of a humor magazine titled the Allegheny Alligator. The editors explained the reasoning behind the title thus: “The name, Alligator, was selected not because the alligator is noted for its sense of humor, nor because the haunts of the abovementioned critter are located in this vicinity, but purely and simply because of the 99.44% alliterative value of its orthography.” A column in that first issue was titled “Gator Gossip,” and in the fall of 1926 an organization called the Go-Get-’Em Gator Club appeared on campus. The club made its presence known at football games by occupying a reserved section of the bleachers and serving as a nucleus for the cheering section. By the end of the decade, Allegheny’s athletic teams were referred to as the Gators. It wasn’t until the 1970s that the name took on a face. It was then that a group of students started a publication evaluating faculty and courses. An illustration of a gator used in one of those publications was adopted by the College administration and eventually evolved into the nameless gator most Alleghenians are familiar with—posed in a tough but friendly stance and proudly wearing a varsity letter sweater. In 1980 the Golden Gator Club was formed, an organization that remains an important link between the Athletics Department and alumni. The gator graphic has retained its strong identity with athletics and in the fall of 2004, it was redesigned to give it a more contemporary look. A new mascot costume was unveiled and “Chompers” made its debut.

Founded in 1983, the North Coast Athletic Conference is dedicated to fostering a complementary relationship between intercollegiate athletics and the pursuit of academic excellence. Consisting of nine academically selective colleges and universities in Ohio, Indiana and Pennsylvania — Allegheny College, Denison University, DePauw University, Hiram College, Kenyon College, Oberlin College, Ohio Wesleyan University, Wabash College, Wittenberg University, The College of Wooster in addition to Earlham College as an affiliate member — the NCAC believes that high-level athletic programs need not be sacrificed in order to meet rigid academic standards. Significantly, all nine NCAC institutions have been granted chapters of Phi Beta Kappa, the preeminent honor society for colleges and universities. Only 276 of the more than 3,000 fouryear institutions in the United States have been so honored.

A member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s Division III, the NCAC features championship competition in 23 sports — 11 for men and 12 for women. The 12 women’s sports are among the most offered by any Division III conference, and the equality in number and emphasis between men’s and women’s athletics is just one of the elements that sets the North Coast apart. The goals of the conference express the best aspirations of American amateur athletics. The NCAC brings together a group of institutions which share a common allegiance to academic quality and to the conduct of athletics so as to support the educational purpose. Intercollegiate athletics can and should complement academic life, rather than compete with it, and sports should enhance the experience of students during their college years. This type of academic and athletic commitment has been led by the school presidents, who have taken an active role in the governance of the conference. The NCAC’s commitment to equity, its broad base of athletic programs, and an unwavering insistence on excellence in academics has served as a model for conferences throughout the country. The North Coast has shown not only that these ideals can coexist, but that they can flourish. The NCAC continues as a pace-setter in the 21st century.

THE GATOR FAMILY “My experience at Allegheny gave me the confidence to accomplish success in my business and amateur golf career. The curriculum helped me think more critically, as well as helping me develop the communication skills that are imperative in any successful business. To know that I will always be a part of the Allegheny College championship golf program is something I cherish. There are a lot of high level academic institutions in the United States, and there are a number of great athletic programs in the college ranks, but Allegheny College provides student-athletes with an opportunity to pursue both at an extraordinarily high level.” - Matt Clarke ‘83 “As a founding member of the women’s golf program and a student at Allegheny, I had the opportunity to compete at a high level on a nationally-recognized team while receiving an outstanding education. My time with the Gators, both in the classroom and on the golf course, made for a great college experience, and one that I will carry with me for life.” - Alison Bruckner ‘09 “The team at Allegheny allowed me to be a member of a program and a tradition that is one of the most prominent in the area, regardless of division. It is a program where the expectation is to compete for a national championship annually. At Allegheny, I played in places and tournaments I would have never dreamed of being in at the beginning of my college career. And with all of this, I truly realized the full value of a degree from Allegheny following graduation.” - Chad Kosanovic ‘06

Matt Clarke ‘83

Abby Sorensen ‘12 “My goal now that I’m a collegiate coach is to re-create the same quality educational and athletic experience for my own team that I was so fortunate to have as a Gator. The Allegheny golf program is about so much more than the game of golf. It’s about preparing young athletes to be diligent students, responsible citizens, and lifelong friends.” - Abby Sorensen ‘12, Head Women’s Golf Coach, Gannon University

“The golf team at Allegheny is more like a family. We helped each other through homework, classes, practices, and tournaments. The best way to balance school and a sport is to have supportive people by your side, and that is exactly what you will find at Allegheny College.” - Hannah Schonau-Taylor ‘11

“When I played golf for Allegheny, I had no idea that it was going to impact my future life as much as it has. Without being on the golf team, I would have never recconected with the college as much as I have. I really enjoy having the teams down to Tampa each year and getting to know the studentathletes. They give me hope for the future!” - Dr. Jeffrey Leimbacher ‘74
