Hamilton earned a spot in the 2013 NESCAC Championship by finishing third in the qualifier in October 2012. The Continentals were competing in this event for the fifth time since the NESCAC instituted a 10-team qualifier in the fall and a four-team championship in the spring for the 2007-08 academic year. Hamilton placed second in the 2008 NESCAC Championship, third in 2009 and 2010 and fourth in 2012.
