Championships are not uncommon at the Capstone. We all just witnessed Coach Saban and the Alabama Football team dominate their way to a sixth championship in the last twelve seasons. But why should they receive all the publicity and love? There are other programs in Title Town that are just as dominant. Dare I say even more dominant?
Since 2009 the Alabama Adapted Athletics teams have combined for fourteen championships. FOURTEEN! Of the three competing sports, Women’s Basketball is at the forefront, winning the National Championship in the following seasons: 2009, 2010, 2011, 2015, 2017, and 2019. The Men’s Basketball team has won three (2013, 2018, and 2019). Then the Tennis team has added five more, winning the championship in 2013, 2015, 2017, 2018, and 2019.
It takes incredible strength and mental discipline to win championships. I am not sure there is a greater example of those qualities than the Alabama Adapted Athletics programs.
Aside from wheelchair basketball and tennis, Alabama Adapted Athletics also has emerging sports including adapted rowing and wheelchair track.
