Cortland has qualified for the NCAA Division III playoffs 27 straight years from 1993-2019 – tied for the longest streak ever in Division III history and the second-longest active streak among all NCAA divisions, behind only Florida State (the streak did not end in 2020 since the season was canceled in mid-March).

In addition to its national championship, Cortland was national runner-up in 2005 and 2010, finished third in 1997, 1998 and 2016, and placed fourth in 2007 and 2012.
Since 1994, Cortland has had 10 players drafted professionally and 15 others who have signed professional free agent contracts.
