The William & Mary Tribe is the athletic teams for the College of William & Mary. The name is an alternative to the "Indian" reference to Native AmericanThe William & Mary Tribe is the athletic teams for the College of William & Mary. The name is an alternative to the "Indian" reference to Native American tribes that once inhabited the university's region. William & Mary has won two team national championships (both in men's tennis), the AIAW championships in women's golf, the NAIA championships in women's gymnastics, thirteen USA Gymnastics Collegiate Championships, and many individual national championships. The College has more conference championships than any other school in the Colonial Athletic Association. As of the end of the 2010–11 academic year, the Tribe had won 101 conference championships. Dating back to the athletic program's beginning, there have been over 159 conference titles in all. William & Mary is the second-oldest university in the United States. Since the founding of its athletic program in 1893 the school's athletes have worn different colours and nicknames. From 1893 to 1909 William & Mary football players were known simply as the Orange and White; this reflected the official school colors at that time. From 1910 to 1916 the team colors changed, and the new nickname, "The Orange and Black", reflected this. From 1916 to the mid-1980s William & Mary athletic teams were known as the Indians to reflect Native American history in the area. Since 1978 the school's teams have been known simply as the Tribe. During the 2006–07 school year then–College President Gene Nichol removed two tribal feathers from the William & Mary athletic logo to bring the program into compliance with newly passed NCAA regulations. On April 6, 2010, after student discussion and subsequent polling, the griffin was announced as the school's new mascot. In September 2020, William & Mary announced it would discontinue seven sports - men's indoor and outdoor track and field, men's and women's swimming, men's and women's gymnastics, and women's volleyball - at the conclusion of the 2020-21 academic year. After a considerable amount of backlash and controversy, Samantha Huge resigned as athletic director on October 6, 2020. Jeremy Martin was named interim athletic director.The three women's sports that had been cut were completely reinstated on October 19, 2020. Then on November 5, 2020, the four men's sports that had been cut were reinstated through the 2021-22 school year, and possibly beyond after a more thorough review.
