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.
