With 2004 FSU Hall of fame inductee Raymond McDougal at the helm, the 2009 Golf team captured not only the CIAA title and won its fourth straight PGA Minority Golf Championship. It also became the first team in FSU history to make it to the NCAA Division II Tournament.
Head Coach Eva Patterson-Heath and the FSU women's basketball team topped Bowie State 66-50 on Feb. 27 to win the Broncos' third CIAA Championship.
Under the direction of head coach Kenny Phillips, FSU made the CIAA Championship game for the fourth time since 2002. After scoring 21 second-half points, FSU topped Bowie State 21-10 to win its third CIAA Championship.
