"Sea-Hawks" is the name of the sports teams of Memorial University of Newfoundland which is located in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador. Until 1990 the teams were known as the "Beothuks”. They formerly competed in senior and university hockey and remain members of the Atlantic University Sport (AUS) conference and U Sports (formerly known as CIS) in other sports.
The Beothuks competed for the Boyle Trophy in Newfoundland senior hockey until they joined the Atlantic Intercollegiate Athletic Association (AIAA) hockey league in 1968-69. They returned to senior hockey in 1976-77 before switching back to university hockey from 1979-80 until the program folded after the 1981-82 season. In 1974 the conference changed its name to Atlantic Universities Athletic Association (AUAA) and in 1999 to Atlantic University Sport (AUS).
Of note, the Beothuks represented Newfoundland in the 1967 Canada Winter Games Hockey Tournament, the first Canada Games. They finished 2-3-0 and were 4th in their 6 team pool.
