SPORT CLUBS Sport clubs are student-run organizations designed to promote participation or competition in a specific athletic or recreational activity. Most of WashU’s 42 sport clubs compete against other colleges and universities on the local, regional and national level. Last year, 1,153 WashU students participated in a sport club.

FALL 2016 HIGHLIGHTS

Men's Water Polo

Women's Soccer

The Bears defeated Carnegie Mellon 14-7 in the title game on October 30 at Hamilton College in Clinton, N.Y. to give WashU the fourth National Championship in program history.

The season's only blemish? Giving up a goal in a 3-1 Regional semifinal win over Nebraska. That's right — the Bears only surrendered one goal in 12 matches this season. WashU outscored opponents 12-1 in four games at the Region IV Tournament, capped by a 4-0 win over Crieghton in the title game.

The WashU men's water polo club capped off a historymaking 2016 season by winning its third-consecutive Collegiate Water Polo Association Division III Club National Championship.

WashU has now advanced to the national title match an unprecedented six consecutive seasons.
