Being an Abbey Crusader means representing Belmont Abbey College through athleticism, virtue, and integrity and giving your best effort so that in all things God may be glorified.
WITNESS FAITH IN SPORTS
With over 30 sports teams competing in NCAA Division II as part of the Conference Carolinas, the Abbey is a strong contender with regional and national titles. Best part? You can play your part by joining one of our teams!
Belmont Abbey College really pushes me not just to be a good athlete, but a good person too. It’s definitely a special place. Almost immediately, you begin to develop a relationship with those around you—from freshman year to senior year and even beyond.
