The Cardinals are the name of the sports teams of the State University of New York at Plattsburgh.

Cardinal Hockey is by far the most notable of Plattsburgh State sports, featuring perennial national powerhouses in both men's and women's ice hockey.

The women's hockey team has won seven NCAA D-III Championships (2007, 2008, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2019), seven ECAC Western Division Championships (2006 and 2007), and two NEWHL Conference Championships. The 2006-2007 Lady Cardinals' team that won the National Championship went undefeated (27-0-2); a feat accomplished for just the fourth time in NCAA hockey history (men's or women's at any level). The 2014-2017 Lady Cardinals' dynasty was the first NCAA ice hockey program to win four straight National Championships (men's or women's at any level).

The women's program started for the 2001-02 season.
