Tiger Pride

Published Aug. 26, 2013

It’s a new era of success and pride for RIT athletics. Both RIT hockey teams compete in NCAA Division I. RIT, members of the Liberty League, also has 22 teams excelling at the Division III level. RIT annually has a large contingent of athletes receiving All-America and All-Academic honors.

“By winning the national championship last year (2012), it was probably the greatest experience I’ve had here,” said Tenecia Hiller, a member of the women’s hockey team. “Through sports and through school, I am a more balanced person. I know what I want. I strive for that.”

RIT has more than 500 student-athletes who carry a grade point average higher than the overall student body.

“This is a special time in our history,” says Lou Spiotti, executive director, intercollegiate athletics. “We are really proud of out athletic accomplishments, but even more proud of the fact that we do it right.”

RIT has state-of-the-art facilities for training, fitness, recreation and competition, remaining at the forefront of NCAA athletics. And more improvements and investments are on the way: http://www.rit.edu/powerplay.
