History and Honors

The Saint Mary's Department of Athletics has a long-standing tradition of excellence. From our Hall of Fame and All-Americans to our outstanding student-athletes we graduate each year, every student-athlete leaves her mark.

In addition to honoring members of each graduating class, we bestow several special Senior Awards each May. Since joining the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association in 1997, Saint Mary's student-athletes have garnered All-MIAA honors 283 times. Additionally, our Belles have earned MIAA Player of the Year distinctions 28 times.
