About the Lions

The 25 intercollegiate athletics programs at Mount St. Joseph University have been built on a strong foundation based on a student first philosophy.

All teams emphasize and encourage academic success, followed closely by athletic achievement. 

The Mount has become a conference and regional powerhouse in several sports, and has received national recognition in volleyball, football, men's basketball, softball and wrestling. Mount athletes are regularly included on all-academic teams at the conference, district and national levels. 

The Mount is proud to be among the 442 schools who compete as a part of Division III of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and a member of the 10 institution strong Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference (HCAC). The HCAC is made up of private, independent colleges spanning Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, or as we like to call it "America's Heartland".
