History of the Seven Sisters

In November 1980, Barnard hosted Bryn Mawr, New Rochelle and Vassar in a four-team basketball tournament, won by New Rochelle. Following the tournament, the original Seven Sisters institutions - Barnard, Bryn Mawr, Mount Holyoke, Radcliffe, Smith, Vassar and Wellesley - joined to conduct championships in common sports. Radcliffe (now Harvard in the athletic arena) was invited but opted not to join and Barnard (now competing as Columbia) was unable to participate in all championships.

Without Radcliffe and Barnard, only five of the original Seven Sisters remained. Haverford and Swarthmore were invited to join the championships as cousins, and depending on the tournament, several other schools have been invited to compete, including: Agnes Scott, Haverford, Swarthmore, Simmons, Elms and Saint Catherine. Seven Sisters Tournaments are currently held in crew, cross country, squash, swimming and diving and tennis.
