24 Teams, One OWU
Ohio Wesleyan's rich athletic tradition reaches back to the 19th century, when we hosted the first football game played by Ohio State University. Our great scholar-athletes include Branch Rickey, who would one day sign Jackie Robinson to break major league baseball's color barrier. Former OWU athletes have graduated to play in the NFL and NBA - and to become CEOs, college professors, entrepreneurs, scientists, and doctors.
OWU's scholar-athletes continue to achieve at the highest levels on the field and in the classroom. Last year, 84 Bishops were named to the NCAC Academic Honor Roll.
We believe completely in the integration of academics and athletics—and we walk the walk. Our sports teams even have faculty partners who help our student adjust to college academics and succeed in their studies as well as their sport.
For more information about our teams and student athletes, athletics news, our athletics history, recruiting, camps, and more, go to BattlingBishops.com.
Beyond varsity athletics, Battling Bishops also compete in various team activities. OWU Esports has teams of competitive gamers, club sports offers opportunities from Equestrian Team to Indoor Hockey, and intramural sports offers seasonal team activities.

"We have a great campus atmosphere. From the students to the faculty to the staff, OWU produces a great student-athlete experience!"
"There is no greater enjoyment than competing for championships every year for a program that has been on the national stage for more than three decades."
"I've never been to a place where the faculty are as involved as they are at Ohio Wesleyan."
"My goal is to help our student-athletes grow so that over the course of four years they become better students, better lacrosse players, and better people."
"Our student-athletes are cared for by more than just their teammates and coaches. They have an entire campus that is looking out for them as students, athletes, and people, creating a fun and positive environment where they can learn how to become their best."
"As long as our students are growing and preparing for the next chapter in their lives, we have been successful."
"There is no university in the United States better at combining academics and athletics!"
