Earlham Athletics 2017-18 Points of Pride

- 11 of Earlham’s 20 varsity teams competed in conference championships or post-season tournaments in 2017-18, including the Quaker men’s tennis, women’s tennis, and women’s basketball teams that advanced by virtue of their regular season record. Earlham women’s basketball earned its first post-season berth since 2008 after winning six of its final 10 games of the 2017-18 season, two of which were on the road.

- Earlham men’s and women’s sports programs each posted their top finish in school history in the annual Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference (HCAC) All-Sports Trophy races, which reflect the overall depth and achievement of the Quakers’ athletics program based on regular season and championship competition.

- Earlham student-athletes volunteered a combined total of 330 hours toward Indiana Special Olympics during the 2017-18 academic year. The Quakers’ work in hosting a Unified Track and Field meet in April earned Earlham Athletics an NCAA award of $500 for additional programming in 2018-19, after winning an NCAA competition spotlighting Special Olympics efforts among Division III institutions.

- A total of 60 student-athletes qualified for the HCAC Tom Bohlson Academic All-Conference teams during the 2017-18 academic year.

- Six student-athletes were among the 19 inductees into the Earlham chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, the nation’s most prestigious and selective honor society. Earlham is one of only 286 institutions to have a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa.

- Earlham student-athletes were heavily involved in NCAA-based programming during the 2017-18 year. Four student-athletes participated in a community service project in Indianapolis as part of NCAA's National Student-Athlete Day activities, and seven Quakers attended the NCAA Convention held in January in Indianapolis and participated in several national and conference meetings. An Earlham student-athlete was also selected to attend the NCAA Career in Sports Forum held in June in Indianapolis.
