University of Redlands
With the 1998 promotion of women's lacrosse to varsity status, the University of Redlands sponsors 20 intercollegiate sports, which include over 500 student-athletes or nearly one-fourth of the undergraduate student body. Thanks to the hard work and commitment of the administration to athletics, the Bulldogs continually upgrade their facilities. Most recently, Redlands improved Ted Runner Stadium by installing an all-weather track made of the Mondo® surface used in the Olympic venues. In 200! 2, Redlands opened its 6800-square-foot, multi-million dollar Fitness Center, adding to the quality of facilities throughout the campus.
The Farquhar Soccer and Recreation Fields came to fruition in the late 1990s and is the only facility in school history designed specifically for soccer. The Thompson Aquatic Center, a state-of-the-art facility that is used both fo r athletic events and by the student body for recreation, opened in 1996 and has served as a template for other facilities throughout Southern California. Built in 1928, Currier Gymnasium is home to the men's and women's basketball and women's volleyball teams.
The University of Redlands makes itself available for hosting opportunities in many sports as the Bulldogs consistently participate in the exciting championship events. Farquhar Field enjoyed recent action of the regional rounds during the NCAA Men's Soccer Championships while the softball “Field of Dreams” played host to the First Round of the 2005 NCAA Softball Championships. Post-season tennis competitions frequently come to Verdieck Courts, which benefited from new windscreens, nets, paint and resurfacing in preparation for the 2003 NCAA Women's Tennis Championships.
Beyond our facilities, the Bulldogs consistently find success in competition, earning the SCIAC’s coveted All-Sports Trophy and placing 16th in the NACDA Sears Cup in 2004-05. That year, Redlands also tied the school record with eight SCIAC championships (men’s soccer, women’s soccer, men’s swimming/diving, golf, softball, men’s tennis, women’s tennis, and women’s water polo).
The University of Redlands is a member of the NCAA Division III and the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. Although Division III does not permit athletic scholarships, the Bulldogs consistently compete on the national scene.
