Work hard. Play hard.

Oglethorpe is a small school with a lot of spirit. Maybe that’s because a full third of our students play a sport; when they’re not giving their everything in the classroom, they’re leaving it all on the field.

Sixteen Stormy Petrel teams play in NCAA’s Division III, with eight men’s teams and eight women’s teams. The offerings include basketball, cross-country, golf, lacrosse, track and field, and more.

Every game is free, so you’ll always have plenty of opportunities to cheer on your classmates. You can even join our Stormy Spirit Squad or the Oglethorpe Pep Band to raise the roof and make some noise all year long. Spirit games like tie-dye night make watching games even more fun!
