The Catholic University of America began competing in inter-collegiate sports — track and football — in the 1890s, before the creation of the Intercollegiate Athletic Association of the United States (1906), which took its present name, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), in 1910. Catholic University’s first recorded competition in football was Nov. 28, 1895 vs. Mt. St. Mary’s College
New York Yankees Senior Vice President and General Manager Brian Cashman BA History ’89, was a four-year starter at second base for the Cardinal and was the team’s leadoff hitter. Cashman, who began working with the New York Yankees organization as an intern in 1986, once held the school record for most hits in a season.
One of Catholic University’s most celebrated athletic alumnus is Wally Pipp, who graduated from Catholic in 1914 with a degree in architecture and went on to play for the New York Yankees. A first baseman, Pipp accumulated a streak of several hundred consecutive games before giving way to Hall of Famer Lou Gehrig, who played a then record 2,130 consecutive games.
Division III At A Glance
Division III (or DIII) is a division of the National Collegiate Athletic that consists of colleges and universities that choose not to offer athletically related financial aid (athletic scholarships) to their student-athletes.
Division III has 438 active member schools (81% private). NCAA regulations require that
the proportion of total financial aid given to athletes at DIII schools “shall be closely equivalent to the percentage of student-athletes within the student body.”
