Out of the Vault: sports

This week’s “Out of the Vault” topic is the comparison of Transy’s sports from 100 and 50 years ago to now. If you have any topic suggestions that you would like to see from Transy history, please email us at rambler@transy.edu.

Similar to present-day universities and colleges, Transy has a plethora of sports to be a part of and cheer on. From men’s and women’s basketball, lacrosse, and soccer to women’s volleyball and many more, athleticism never ceases on and off-campus, but did you know that Transy used to have a football team? The team was active from 1880 to 1941, and in the very first game, beat Centre College. It competed within the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association. And just as sports have manifested and changed over the decades, so has the landscape of Transy’s sports!
