We thank everyone who participated in the Cardinal Athletics Giving Challenge in 2020. In the past two weeks, the University's athletics programs and teams raised $236,475. But this year's challenge was the most successful yet, not because it raised the most money (even though it did) but because 2,327 members of our community rallied in support of our student-athletes, coaches, and athletics staff during this difficult time. Athletic competition has been postponed, yet our community is stronger than ever!

All 23 teams and the Athletics Annual Fund received generous contributions from donors. But the following teams claimed extra prizes for finishing the challenge at the top of the leaderboard:
