Athletics and Recreation
The Pioneers compete in one of the nation’s toughest NCAA Division III conference — Ohio Athletic Conferences. Marietta fields 20 varsity sports, including men’s and women’s crew. Marietta is also home to the six-time national championship baseball team and a men’s basketball program that has reached the NCAA Tournament four out of the past six years.
Marietta’s recreation program is housed in the Dyson Baudo Recreation Center, where many of the intramural tournaments are held — basketball, volleyball and racquetball. The competitions may be friendly, but students proudly where their championship T-shirts around campus to make sure everyone knows who won.
