Five Loyola teams won Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championships in 2009-2010: men's soccer, women's soccer, men's swimming and diving, men's golf and women's crew. The men's lacrosse team, which competes in the ECAC, also advanced to the NCAA Championships with an at-large bid.

Loyola ranked third in the North Region in the 2011 U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges & University survey, and the university rated very high in several of the publication's categories.
