The collection contains programs, newsletters, news clippings, meet results, photographs, artifacts and other material related to the College of William and Mary Men's and Women's Track and Field and Cross Country teams from 1986-2004. The print material in the collection pertains to both the men's and women's teams during these years, while a majority of the roughly four boxes of photographs pertains mainly to the women's track and field and cross country teams of the 1990s and early 2000s. The artifacts in the collection, such as medals and a track uniform from the 1990s, also pertain to the women's team.
The men's and women's track and field and cross country teams have been some of the most successful intercollegiate athletic teams to represent the college of William and Mary. Each of these teams has won more than ten conference championships and made as many NCAA championship appearances. Notably, the men's cross country team qualified for the NCAA championships fourteen years in a row between 1997 and 2010.
