Tracer Athletics

The OUZ Athletic Department provides intercollegiate varsity sports programs in women’s volleyball, men’s and women’s basketball, baseball, golf and women’s softball so those student-athletes who participate can enhance their college experience. OUZ is a member of the Ohio Regional Campus Conference and abides by the rules and regulations of that conference.

Littick Hall, named for a former Ohio University coach and local businessman Clay Littick, houses the gym which is used for basketball and volleyball games and matches. The OUZ freshman basketball tournament is held during the Christmas break each year, and this tournament brings many local junior high players to campus. Littick is also used for indoor baseball and softball practice complete with a free standing batting cage.

Tom Checkush Field, named for a local baseball legend, provides a great on-campus playing site for the baseball team, the Tracers, and our softball players are currently playing on the newly built softball field. The commitment to athletics and the student athletes is apparent when you see both a softball field and a baseball field on campus. OUZ is one of the few facilities in our conference to have on-campus facilities for these two sports.
