"Marauders" is the name of the sports teams of McMaster University, located in Hamilton, Ontario. The hockey team was formerly known as the "Marlins". The Marauders are members of Ontario University Athletics (OUA) and U Sport, formerly known as CIS. They no longer compete in the hockey league.

History[edit | edit source]

McMaster University was founded in Toronto, Ontario in 1887 and moved to Hamilton in 1930. The school's different sports teams used different names at different times, including "Maroons", "Rams", "Maroon Marauders", and of course Marlins and Marauders.

The McMaster Marlins hockey team started out competing at the intermediate level. Wikia records date back to the 1902-03 season. The Intermediate Intercollegiate League (IIL) was for the small universities and colleges in Ontario and Quebec and for the second teams of the major universities who competed in the CIAU (Central) and QOAA.

McMaster did not enter senior level university hockey until 1961-62 when they joined the Quebec-Ontario Athletic Association (QOAA), where they remained until the conference ended in 1970-71. In 1971-72 they joined the Ontario Universities Athletic Association (OUAA) once the Ontario and Quebec conferences were re-organized along provincial lines. The program folded after the 1988-89 season.

While in the university ranks, McMaster had two major accomplishments - winning the 1963 University Cup, the first ever held, and winning a bronze at the 1967 Canada Games.

The University currently has an extra-mural hockey club that hopes to gain Varsity status.
