Johns Hopkins Athletics

We first fielded a men's lacrosse team in 1883, seven years after the founding of the university.

Since then, the Blue Jays have won 44 national titles, including nine since men’s lacrosse became an NCAA sport. But the Blue Jays are not just about lacrosse. The university fields 24 varsity teams that routinely qualify for NCAA championship play. Beyond the varsity squads, many students get in the game through the university’s 11 intramural sports, including 3-on-3 basketball, flag football, and wallyball. There’s also an array of club sports, ranging from badminton and Brazilian jujitsu to water polo and wrestling.
