The men’s track & field team earned its first championships in program history, capturing the indoor and outdoor titles as well.
The success for the track & field teams would not stop there though as the two squads went on to claim the first two national championships in school history at the 2013 NAIA Outdoor Track & Field National Championships held in Marion, Indiana.
In addition to the regular season titles, the women’s lacrosse team and baseball team brought home conference tournament championships. It was the baseball team’s fourth WHAC tournament championship in the last five years.
The women’s soccer team was one of four Tech teams that finished in second place. The men’s and women’s bowling teams were both second in the inaugural season for WHAC bowling. Also in its first season a WHAC sport, the men’s lacrosse team placed second.

Started in 1994, the All-Sports trophy is computed using the highest finish in 10 conference sports (five women and five men) for each school. Each sport champion is awarded points based on the number of schools participating in each sport. For a sport with all 12 WHAC schools participating, 12 points are awarded for first place with second receiving 11 points and so on. For a sport with only eight WHAC schools participating, eight points are awarded for first place with second receiving seven points and so on.
