NCAA Individual Champions

Washington University in St. Louis has had 22 individual student-athletes and five relay teams win a combined 35 individual NCAA Championships in their respective sports.

This year, Eka Jose claimed the triple jump national title during the indoor season while Paige Lawler was the individual cross country national champion. The men's swimming team added another title with the men's 400 medley relay group of Peyton Wilson, Kevin Van Cleave, Andrew Pek and Chase Van Patten claiming the first relay event title in program history. In addition, Brandon Lum claimed his second national title in the 200 butterfly, previously doing so in 2017.

In 2017, the women's distance medley relay claimed a title at the NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships to help the Bears secure their first track & field team title in program history. The women also secured their first Outdoor Track & Field National Championship in 2017, while Rebecca Ridderhoff ran to a national title in the 400m hurdles. In addition, senior Deko Ricketts swept the indoor and outdoor 800m national titles. Sophomore Brandon Lum won the individual 200 butterfly title with a new NCAA Division III record time of 1:44.56 for the WashU men's swimming and diving team.
