Bring your best game!
All Blugolds are competitive by virtue of getting the academic edge and having great experiences out of the classroom. Our athletes take it to the next level!
Blugolds play hard … and they work harder! They are consistently named among the best conference scholar-athletes and are also nationally recognized for community service. They have carried an average GPA of 3.00 or higher 12 years in a row. We’re ranked 22 out of 430+ NCAA Division III athletic programs, according to the esteemed Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup and 25 individual Blugold athletes earned a total of 28 All-American honors.
UW-Eau Claire is a member of the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, which consists of nine UW System schools.
When you join Blugold athletics, you join a tradition of excellence!
"Becoming a Blugold was one of the best decisions of my life. The opportunities on the football field helped shape the person I am today and the outstanding academics prepared me to pursue my medical career.”"
— Dr. Austin Crow '03 Blugold Football Team Physician
"The national record is nice, but to me, the most important things are getting those team points. If the Blugolds ‘ain’t eating’ then I’m not either."
— Thurgood Dennis | Sprinter | 6 career national championships | 2 national records | 2014 NCAA Division III National Indoor Athlete of the Year
