TWU Athletics functions as an integral part of the total educational offerings of the University through the unique competitive learning experiences it provides. TWU Athletics shares with other components on campus the responsibility to contribute positively to the development of the individual student in an environment that empowers and affirms the full development of women.
The TWU Intercollegiate Athletics program is comprised of nine women’s teams including Artistic Swimming, Basketball, Dance, Gymnastics, Soccer, Softball, STUNT, Volleyball, and Wrestling.
Intercollegiate Athletic Offices are located in Pioneer Hall including team locker rooms, a sports performance facility, and a sports medicine facility. Additional Athletics Facilities include the Kitty Magee Arena at Pioneer Hall, Dance Studio at Pioneer Hall, the Pioneer Hall Indoor Pool, the Gymnastics Practice Facility (DGL), Pioneer Soccer Park, and Dianne Baker Field.
A proud member of NCAA Division II and the Lone Star Conference, TWU Athletics is committed to the philosophy of academic and athletic excellence, where student comes first in student-athlete. Since 1982, the combined grade point average of all student-athletes each semester has never dropped below a 3.0. Many Pioneers have been awarded post-graduate scholarships and NCAA awards, and several have been honored with the distinction of TWU Distinguished Alumni.
The Pioneers have won conference, regional and national championships. Individual student-athletes have set national records, achieved All-America honors, won medals in the Olympics, and participated on Pan American and national teams representing the United States.
