Numerous Bearcat teams are continually ranked in the top 25 in the country, and our teams are highly competitive in the Peach Belt Conference and NCAA Division II. Our student-athletes also score high in the classroom, as many are listed on the Peach Belt Conference Presidential Honor Roll.

Lander University Athletics has come a long way since our first sport was started in 1968.

Men’s basketball began with no facilities for practice or play. As the years passed, we have kept up with the times by adding other sports and by building excellent, state-of-the-art facilities for all of our athletic programs.

Horne Arena, home to our men’s and women’s basketball teams and women’s volleyball team, is a 2,500-seat facility. The Chandler Physical Education/Exercise Studies Center has an auxiliary gym with three full-sized basketball courts and an indoor walk/jog track. The center also has a weight room, six racquetball courts, a dance studio and a multipurpose room.

Our newest facility is the Jeff May Complex, which houses our baseball, softball, tennis and soccer teams. The JMC Field House features facilities for athletes and visiting players, coaches’ offices, an athletic training room and a fitness center.
