With 10 league titles, the 2011-2012 season has been one for the University of Louisville’s athletic record books.

The tenth title sets a new school record for most league titles earned during season play. That tops the 9 earned in 2008-2009, according to U of L Athletics.

Men’s baseball secured the tenth title in their May 19 match-up against Pittsburgh – their third BIG EAST title in four years. Video of them celebrating here. 

2011-2012 season titles:

  • Baseball (co-champions)
  • Football (co-champions)
  • Women’s soccer (North division champions)
  • Softball 
  • Volleyball

2011-2012 post-season titles:

In their seven-year history in the BIG EAST Conference, the Cardinals have claimed 50 league titles – a number that puts them second to only Notre Dame, which has 64. Only seven of the 16 teams in the conference have championship totals in the double digits, U of L Athletics says.

U of L is also the only university in 2011-2012 to appear in a bowl game and score NCAA tournament wins in women’s basketball, volleyball, both men’s and women’s soccer. And then there’s men’s basketball’s appearance in the NCAA Final Four, which fans celebrated around the city.
