In collaboration with the Athletics Department, we recognize and honor alumni and coaches who made distinguished contributions to varsity athletics at Catholic University.

Catholic University has a rich athletic history. For more than a century, the University has fielded athletic teams, garnering an Orange Bowl victory, eight individual national champions, and one national championship team.

During this biennial event, we induct the University’s athletic greats into the Athletics Hall of Fame. We encourage you to join us as we welcome these players and coaches back to campus and celebrate their contributions to the University.
