Montana Technological University is committed to recruiting and developing student-athletes who will perform successfully in the classroom and compete at a championship level.
We are also committed to giving more students the chance to earn a Montana Tech education and increased our student-athlete population by 14% in 2021 totaling 247 students.
As our rosters increase, so does the need for support.
This past year our student athletes boasted a cumulative grade point average of 3.17 across 37 degree programs. Our student athletes truly walk the walk and put the “student” in student-athlete bringing home Academic All-Conference honors for the 2020-2021 seasons including:
- 45 in Football
- 9 in Volleyball
- 12 in Women's Basketball
- 3 in Men's Basketball

We know that to excel as Montana Tech Athletics we need to raise unrestricted funds to best recruit future Orediggers, support our current players and programs.
Unrestricted funds through the Digger Legacy Fund allow us to provide scholarships for student-athletes, purchase new equipment, provide improvements and upkeep to facilities, expand and support coaching staff salaries, promote our programs and enrich our community.
In short, growing our Digger Athletics Legacy Fund helps grow Digger Athletics.
The Digger Athletics Legacy Fund helps provide a championship-level experience for all our student-athletes.
In addition we are launching the Digger Athletics Legacy Club for donors to the Digger Athletics Legacy Fund. Membership levels include the Pick & Hammer Society available to former Montana Tech student-athletes and coaches. Additional societies within the Digger Athletics Legacy Club include Green, Copper, Gold, All-Conference, All-American and All-Oredigger.
