National Championships

Johns Hopkins has won a total of 51 national team championships since the school fielded its first intercollegiate athletic team in 1882.  Of the 51, 44 have been won by the Blue Jay men's lacrosse team, while four belong to the women's cross country team and three belong to the men's swimming team.

The women's cross country team claims the last four national championships for Johns Hopkins as the Blue Jays took home the walnut & bronze in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2016. Hopkins won its fourth national title in five years in November 2016 becoming the first team to do so since SUNY Cortland won five in six seasons from 1992 to 1997. 

The record of success of the Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team is as impressive as it is long.  The Blue Jays won six ILA National Championships between 1891 and 1903 before taking 29 USILA Championships from 1929 through 1970.

The NCAA began sponsoring the men's lacrosse championship in 1971 and Johns Hopkins has since won nine national championships under the NCAA's banner.  In 1978 and 1979, Johns Hopkins won the NCAA championship in men's swimming in the winter and added an NCAA title in men's lacrosse in the spring.

While only men's lacrosse, men's swimming and women's cross country have won that elusive title, Johns Hopkins is a regular contender for the national championship in several sports.  Since 1990, the Blue Jay football, baseball, men's soccer, women's lacrosse, women's soccer, men's swimming, women's swimming, women's cross country, men's tennis, women's tennis and field hockey teams have all finished in the top eight in the nation.
