Lewis University is a private Roman Catholic and Lasallian university located in Romeoville, Illinois
The men’s volleyball team won the 2003 NCAA Division I/II National Collegiate Men’s Volleyball Championship by defeating Brigham Young University, but it later voluntarily gave back its title after an internal investigation found ineligibility issues that were kept private from the NCAA. This disgrace hurt the program for a few years, but they have slowly climbed their way back into the Top-10 rankings of DI-II schools.
Lewis also competes intercollegiately in Rugby as a member of the CARFU.
Prior to joining the NCAA, Lewis was a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), winning the NAIA Baseball World Series 1974-76 and finishing as runners-up in 1966 and 1980.
