YOU helped us reach our goal!

Thank you!

We are excited to announce that as of this weekend, we exceeded our goal to fund the 2016 Mulerider Softball championship rings! Alumni and friends like you have been generous enough to cover the entire cost of the rings for our student-athletes and coaches. These rings will be permanent reminders of the hard work and commitment it took to make it to the NCAA Division II Women's College World Series and finish the season as the No. 4 team in the country! When they look at these rings, they will also remember YOU and everyone who cheered them on along the way. 

Every donor to the championship rings will be invited to take part in the ring presentation on Saturday, Oct. 1. Watch your mail and email in the months ahead for more information.

The design is here!

August 02, 2016

After weeks of working with the vendor, the final design for our 2016 championship rings has arrived! We can't wait to pass these rings out to the team this fall. Thank you to each one who has contributed towards the purchase of these rings. Each time the student-athletes look at their rings, they will be reminded of the hard work it took to finish as the No. 4 team in the country!

There is still time for others to join in on this exciting opportunity to honor these outstanding student-athletes. Please continue to share this project through email and social media, encouraging your friends to help us meet the goal.

Choose a giving level


17 years in the making

Consider making a gift of $19.99! This tribute to the year SAU started playing NCAA softball (1999) will make an impact as we honor the 2016 Regional Champions!


A record-setting year

The 2016 Mulerider Softball team won more games than any team in program history! Show your support today by making a gift of $53 in honor of their 53 wins!


Partner up!

Teamwork is crucial to any championship team. Consider a gift of $150 (half of a championship ring) and then recruit a friend to give the other half!



The Muleriders scored 381 runs during the 2016 season. When you make a gift of $381 today, you have covered the entire cost of one student-athlete's championship ring (and a little extra)!


Two Championships

The Muleriders won TWO big championships this year - the Great American Conference championship and the NCAA DII Central Region championship. In honor of these two championships, you can purchase rings for two student-athletes with a gift of $600.


World Series

The Muleriders made it all the way to the final four of the NCAA DII Women's College World Series, eliminating the #1 team in the country along the way! Show your excitement by providing rings for three players today!
