    Achievements on and off the field

    Worcester State University has a strong athletics tradition that values and supports our students’ academic responsibilities. Here, athletics are about more than just playing sports; they are about learning teamwork, building confidence, and understanding competitive strategy. Our student-athletes strive to be high-achievers—on the field, in the classroom, and in the community at-large. Worcester State Lancers use the skills and lessons from the field to make an impact on the world.

    Worcester State has 9 men’s and 10 women’s NCAA Division III varsity teams and competes in the MASCAC, Little East, and ECAC conferences. Our teams regularly qualify for league tournaments and NCAA Division III post-season play, with many standout student-athletes achieving All-New England, All-American, and other conference honors.
