Athletics for women at Clemson began in 1975 with the announcement of women’s basketball. Nearly 50 years later, Clemson athletics proudly sponsors 12 NCAA Division I women’s programs. These programs have claimed an impressive 39 ACC regular-season or tournament team championships, 49 women are enshrined in the Clemson Athletic Hall of Fame, and former Clemson alumnae have earned 10 Olympic medals. Outside of competition, our Tigers have posted record-setting GPAs and become leaders professionally in their families and communities. We have much to be proud of as supporters of women’s athletics and our young women who proudly wear the Paw!
The momentum behind the growth of athletic opportunities for women at Clemson has never been more tremendous. Within the last decade, Clemson athletics has added women’s golf (2012-13), softball (2019-20), and announced the sponsorship of women’s lacrosse (2022-23) and women’s gymnastics (2023-24). In the spring of 2022, a comprehensive women’s athletic facility plan was formalized, and POWER: Women’s Leadership Academy was officially launched. Today is a pinnacle moment in Clemson women’s athletics; we are climbing to new heights, and it is time to Hear Her Roar!
