Athletics at Beloit College

Play the sport you love

Beloit athletes compete because they want to. Each athlete is passionate about getting the most out of their college experience: pursuing a meaningful liberal arts education, being part of a close-knit community, and playing the game they love.

That experience is a powerful combination. College athletes are recognized as valuable hires by employers, being able to work in teams, set goals, work to attain them, manage time, and solve problems with resilience.

During Practice

Your teammates are your closest friends and your toughest adversaries. They come from all over the world and push you every day to be the very best version of yourself as both an athlete and as a teammate.

In the Classroom

Beloit student-athletes are classroom leaders in teamwork and discipline, bringing the tenacity they’ve honed in the gym and on the court and showing the whole campus the benefits of consistent hard work.

On the Field

The Bucs have a proud tradition of being unselfish, team-first, winners. Your teammates will hold you accountable, will have your back, and will raise you up. At Beloit, we win as one.

A Career in Broadcasting

Calling the big leagues

Joe Davis’10 soared to a coveted post as the play-by-play announcer for the L.A. Dodgers after iconic broadcaster Vin Scully retired.

Pursuing the profession you love, excelling wildly, and being well compensated for it—that’s pretty much anyone’s definition of a dream job. And it is certainly Joe Davis’s, who will be the first to tell you that he didn’t build his career all on his own.

It took a college. Beloit “set me up to get ahead of the curve when I graduated,” Davis says.
