After four years as a member of Conference , the Tulsa Golden Hurricane has captured a league-best 25 conference championships since the league restructured in the fall of 2005. Tulsa has won 16 postseason titles and nine regular season conference crowns, including three Western Division football titles in 2005, 2007 and 2008.
Rice is second with 16 championships, including 13 postseason crowns and three regular season titles, while has 14 league championships (nine post-season and five regular season). This year Tulsa won a total of seven titles, including four postseason conference crowns coming in the sports of men?s soccer, men?s cross country, men?s tennis and softball. The regular season championships came in men?s soccer, softball and a Western Division title in football. ?It is a credit to the extraordinary efforts of our student-athletes and the coaching staffs that we have won this many league titles in a brief period of time,? says Director of Athletics Bubba Cunningham. ?From the time that students are recruited through the day they receive their diploma, winning championships and graduating are the goals that they strive to achieve through hard work and dedication. We have been very fortunate that these student-athletes have been able to reach these goals,? adds Cunningham.
