One day, for Shaw, 2000-2010 will truly be the good old days. In the ten academic years encompassed in the decade, Shaw was the only CIAA school to win a CIAA championship every single year.
Powered in large part by six straight men's tennis victories, and the dominance of the women's basketball team in the early part of the decade, won two championships in all but two years in the decade.
Baseball and women's cross country opened the decade by bringing home CIAA titles in the 2000-2001 academic year. In 2009-2010, the Bears (and Lady Bears) finished off the decade with titles by the men's and women's tennis teams.
The 2005-2006 season was the pinnacle for the Shaw athletics department as four different teams brought home titles: baseball, women's basketball and men's and women's tennis.
The second decade of the 21st century got off to a fast start for the Bears, as well, with the football team claiming the CIAA championship to open the 2010-2011 academic year.
