Highlighting these performances is the 2010-11 women’s basketball program, which claimed the first NCAA Division II National Championship in program history, doing so with a commanding 69-50 victory over Michigan Tech on March 25, 2011 in St. Joseph, Missouri.

In all, Clayton State has earned a total of 66 titles and every program has had at least four champions. Women's basketball has delivered an amazing 17 championships. Additionally, every program has had at least three appearances in a national tournament with women's cross country making 27 such trips.
