Dominican Athletics


Dominican athletics has dramatically upgraded its facilities and level of competition and stature.

The Conlan Center is a state-of-the-art athletics center complete with gymnasium, workout room, the Catherine Brisbois Memorial Swimming Pool, and other modern conveniences. The John F. Allen Athletics Complex, opened in 2012, includes Kennelly Field – a multi-purpose synthetic turf field with scoreboard, new tennis courts, bathrooms, and parking spaces.

Dominican sponsors 12 intercollegiate sports and is a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II and the 13-member Pacific West Conference, the largest conference in the NCAA Division II West Region. Men’s lacrosse is a member of the Western Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (WILA) and is one of just two NCAA Division II men’s lacrosse programs in California.

Until 2009, Dominican was a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Division II and the California Pacific Conference.

The Dominican mascot has been the Penguins since the student body voted to change the school’s nickname to honor the Dominican Sisters in the mid-1970s.
