Although the Spartans program has not achieved a national championship, it has made runs into the postseason in 1996, 2001 and 2018. The 2017-2018 season was particularly exciting for the school because it was the winningest season in program history. The Spartans breaking out as formal competitors is leading many to believe that Wofford is becoming a worthy rival.
