CBUAfter solidifying itself as a dominant force in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) California Baptist University took on a new challenge in 2013-14, becoming a full member in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II that year. CBU had been an NAIA member since 1969 and is now working on establishing that same reputation in the NCAA.

The Lancers got off to a great start in 2013-14, with 13 of their programs being nationally ranked at one point or another and seven cracking the top-10. Twelve of 19 eligible CBU teams qualified for the NCAA postseason in their first shot at the next level. It did not take long for the Lancers to win their first individual championship in the NCAA, with Mary Hanson winning the 100-yard backstroke in a division-record time of 52.45 seconds at the Division II Championships.  Hanson was also one of 20 Lancers to reach NCAA All-American status in 2013-14, with the programs combining for 36 All-American awards in all.

CBU won its first two national titles in 1999 and embarked on a historic run of success from there. It captured 22 NAIA championships over a 13-year span (1999-2011) and over 16 years (1996-2011) the Lancers racked up 149 individual national championships in the NAIA.

California Baptist University looked to build on its success by entering the application process to the NCAA in the summer of 2010 after the school had undergone continual growth, in enrollment and academic offerings, since 1994.

During its transition to the NCAA, the Lancers dominated the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA). CBU won nine team and seven individual NCCAA championships and secured 62 All-American awards over 2011-12 and 2012-13.

Today, nineteen of the Lancers’ 20 intercollegiate sports (10 men and 10 women) compete in the NCAA (cheerleading is not an NCAA-sanctioned sport). Sixteen of the 19 NCAA programs are in Division II, while men’s and women’s water polo and men’s volleyball compete at the National Collegiate level, which is made up mostly of NCAA Division I programs.

Not long after the move to Division II, CBU transitioned from the Golden State Athletic CBUConference (GSAC) to the Pacific West Conference (PacWest) in 2011-12. The Lancers had been members of the GSAC since 1987 and had reaped 28 conference crowns over their 25 years in the GSAC. While CBU is a primary member of the PacWest, with 13 of its programs in the conference, it also has teams with membership in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference (RMAC), Mountain Pacific Sports Federation, Western Water Polo Association (WWPA) and Golden Coast Conference (GCC).

Men’s volleyball became a conference member of the MPSF in 2012-13, where it competes against not only some of the top programs in the West, but the entire country. For the first time in program history, CBU men’s and women’s swimming and diving, water polo and wrestling took on a conference affiliation in 2013-14. Swimming/diving and wrestling are members of the RMAC, while men’s and women’s water polo are in the WWPA and GCC, respectively.

National Championship Teams

In all, California Baptist University has won a total of 35 national championships in its history. The Lancers won 22 championships in the NAIA era, with nine of their titles coming in the National Christian College Athletic Association during the Lancers’ two-year transition from the NAIA to the NCAA in the 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons. CBU’s four other national championships came from wrestling and cheerleading, with Lancer wrestling winning a pair of National Collegiate Wrestling Association (NCWA) titles in 2011 and 2013, while cheer repeated as National Cheerleaders Association (NCA) champions in 2013 and 2014.
