The Wheaton College Department of Athletics has concluded its fourth Lyons Athletic Club (LAC) Strength in Numbers Challenge! This challenge is a competition between varsity teams in an effort to achieve the highest alumnae/i rate of participation.
Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous student-athlete alum donor, the top performing teams will receive additional prize money.
For the fourth consecutive time, the baseball team has won the challenge, while swimming & diving finished second and synchronized swimming finished third. Both the baseball and synchronized swimming programs brought in the most first-time donors.
