The UCF Kiteboarding Club won the Collegiate Kiteboarding Association National Championship in Cape Hatteras, NC after finishing 2nd the previous year.
UCF Sport Clubs have a long record of success at the national level, winning 13 team National Titles since 2004. This year, our clubs are continuing to perform at a high level both on and off the field. Here’s a look at some of our clubs and their national rankings in various governing bodies through March 10th, 2016:
It was UCF's first National Duals championship, earning valuable team points (24) that will carry over to the overall NCWA Championships in March. UCF has won three NCWA Championships in its past, but never the National Duals. The Knights had placed among the top five at the Duals in six of the last seven years.
The Central Florida Sirens closed their weekend the same way they started it: dominantly. They entered as the top ranked team and the number one seed at the tournament and left with no doubt as to the accuracy of those accolades. Through their seven games, UCF went almost entirely unchallenged, decimating their competition. The weekend’s final statement was a 13-6 blowout of an impressive Pittsburgh team.

While diving the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida, Aliris Loperena spots a nurse shark 15 feet below. Carefully and quietly, she swims to meet the 8- to 10-foot carnivorous fish. Before the bottom feeder retreats to the ocean’s floor, she manages to stroke its slippery side. Read more via the Central Florida Future

For members of the UCF Racquetball Club, its Saturday tournament at UCF’s Recreation and Wellness Center was slightly less competitive than the club’s March trip to Tempe, Arizona, where they took home five medals in the 2015 National Intercollegiate Championships.
But it was a chance to fine-tune their skills in a competitive atmosphere, while still having a bit of fun.
Although the 30-participant, single-day tournament was smaller than the two collegiate events the club holds each year, it gave members a chance to keep their game in its groove.
Some students may think being a UCF Knight is already fun enough — try being a Knight with a saber, ready to duel. The Fencing Knights at UCF have been yielding sabers for 15 years.
"Anything your mother couldn't let you do, you can do it here in fencing. People who actually try out, they tend to stay with it very well," coach Ken Lauver said. "There are false expectations about fencing. People think it's dangerous. Fencing is actually the fourth-safest sport of all the Olympic sports."
