Lets take a look at some of the forgotten college sports teams around the area. Even junior college teams get more press than these two schools.

The Bowie State Bulldogs are the only local school to play in NCAA Division II. They play in the Northern Division of the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association against other historically black colleges and universities.

Washington Adventist University’s sports teams are known as The Shock. The school, located in Takoma Park, was for years known as Columbia Union College. It is a Seventh-day Adventist liberal arts university. Formerly a NCAA Division II athletic program, they maintain membership in the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) and National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). Last season The Shock men’s team won the USCAA Men’s Division I National Championship over Tennessee Temple University in a game held at Penn State Fayette . Expect them to continue to do well this season.
