With the Iron Dukes' 2009-10 fiscal year coming to an end, we would like to thank all of our Iron Dukes members for another amazing year of support for our Blue Devils. The unprecedented success that Duke Student-Athletes enjoyed in 2009-10, and will continue to enjoy well into the future, is a direct reflection of your generosity. Our teams are the best of the best both athletically and academically.  Below are some examples of the acheivements of 2009-10.

Achievements on the Field

  • 3 National Championships!  The Men's Basketball team, Men's Lacrosse team, and freshman diver Nick McCrory all took home NCAA Gold.

Achievements in the Classroom

  • 125 student-athletes earned their college degree this year.

Acheivements in the Community

  • Over 500 Duke student-athletes across all Duke Athletic teams participated in approximately 1,400 hours of service and leadership across various organizations in the Duke and Durham community.

Your support is greatly appreciated by all of us here at the Iron Dukes. Thanks again for the role you continue to play in the lives of Duke Student-Athletes.
