THEN: The college had teams for football, baseball, gymnastics, and tennis. The players often organized, outfitted, and coached themselves, going up against other school rivals from around the state. On January 27, 1900, officials from R-MC, Richmond College, Hampden-Sydney College, Virginia Military Institute, Washington and Lee University, Virginia Polytechnical Institute, and the University of Virginia meet at UVA to form the Virginia Intercollegiate League.
NOW: Seven men's sports (baseball, basketball, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, and tennis) and seven women's sports (basketball, field hockey, lacrosse, soccer, softball, tennis, and volleyball) are affiliated with the Old Dominion Athletic Conference. R-MC is classified in the NCAA Division III. A program of intramural sports is open to all students.
