The United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) is a national organization that exists to provide quality athletic competition on a regional and national level. The USCAA focuses specifically on smaller institutions of higher learning and their student-athletes. The association believes that all athletes and programs deserve the same national opportunities as larger institutions. SMWC is an organization that can provide those opportunities.
SMWC's teams are known as the "Pomeroys." Their name was chosen in memory of alumna and faculty member Sister Mary Joseph Pomeroy, a Sister of Providence, who was a great advocate of athletics and physical fitness. The name "Pomeroy" is not so much a thing, but a spirit of athletic excellence and sportsmanship.
