The Heartbeat of the Athletic Program


The key to any successful athletic program lies in the heights that its individual teams reach. Middlebury has been blessed with countless teams that have come together to achieve success that continues to make the school and alumni proud. Over the years, Middlebury has boasted a plethora of NESCAC Championship squads and 31 National Champions. Unfortunately, due to time constraints, it is impossible to profile every team worthy of a feature. The teams that I have chosen to highlight on this website come from a variety of sports and possessed qualities that made them stand out. Success can be measured in how well a team helped advance an athletic program, as well as wins and losses. Team sports are an incredibly powerful tool that teach life lessons and create life-long bonds. As Middlebury Football coach Bob Ritter always says, it is a very special and rare thing in life to have such a large group of people all working towards a common goal. The teams featured here are only a few examples where those goals were realized in tremendous ways.
