Teams

Softball

On April 26, 2008, Sara Tucholsky, a reserve outfielder on the Wolves softball team (2005-08), hit the first home run of her college career in a victory over Central Washington University, but injured her knee rounding first base; Central Washington's Mallory Holtman and Liz Wallace carried Tucholsky around the rest of the bases to home plate. This act of sportsmanship was heavily covered by national media outlets,[] and resulted in Tucholsky, Holtman, and Wallace's winning the Best Moment award at the 2008 ESPY Awards.[2]

The Wolves softball team appeared in one Women's College World Series in 1975.[3]

Western Oregon University Men's Rugby (WOR) has grown to become one of the most successful rugby programs in the pacific northwest. WOU Rugby has traditionally been a part of the DII level of the NW region, retaining a completely undefeated regular season record in DII league play. During the 2008-2009 season, WOR became the DII Pacific Northwest Champions. With the championship, WOR made the trip out to Florida to compete in the 2009 DII USA Rugby National Championship. Following the 2011-2012 DII 15s season, WOR accepted admittance into the Northwest Collegiate Rugby Conference in the D1 section of USA Rugby. WOR now competes in 7s and 15s during fall and spring seasons.
