Maryville is Saints Nation, and as proud Saints, we believe that intercollegiate athletics are an integral component of higher education. Maryville sports have a great influence on campus culture and build a unique sense of community among students, athletes, staff, and local fans. As a proud member of NCAA Division II, Maryville students have the opportunity to play for—and root for—23 intercollegiate teams. Whether on the field or in the stands, Maryville redefines the sports experience for every Saint.
