Athletic feats

Twelve men attended the Maine State College of Agriculture and the Mechanic Arts when it opened Sept. 21, 1868. Thirteen years later, in 1881, baseball became the school’s first intercollegiate team. The nine fielded a 3–3 record, besting Bangor Athletic Association three times and losing twice to Colby and once to Bates.

Following are additional achievements and historical moments from the early days.
