The Middle Atlantic Conference

The MAC (Middle Atlantic Conferences) was organized on December 11, 1912 as a loose confederation of colleges. The first annual

meeting occurred on May 16, 1913, followed by the first conference track meet at Lafayette College the next day. The Middle Atlantic

Collegiate Wrestling Association, formed in March 1925, was the first to name a Middle Atlantic Champion. In 1952 the conference

unified and recognized competition in all sports. Many of the universities left the conference in 1974 when the NCAA created

Divisions I, II, and III. The MAC added women’s athletics in 1978.

Major changes occurred in 1993. Ten schools left to form their own association; their departure served as a catalyst for the remaining

sixteen schools to form a streamlined, efficient, dual-league organization. This “new look” was part of a national movement to consolidate

similar institutions for competitive athletic opportunities while increasing presidential involvement in the setting of athletic policy.

In 1999, spurred by changes in the NCAA championship structure, the MAC formed as an umbrella for three conferences -

Freedom, Commonwealth, and Middle Atlantic.

Current members are Albright College, Alvernia University, Arcadia University, Delaware Valley College, DeSales University, Eastern

University, Elizabethtown College, Fairleigh Dickinson University, the College at Florham, Hood College, King’s College, Lebanon

Valley College, Lycoming College, Manhattanville College, Messiah College, Misericordia University, Stevenson University, Widener

University, and Wilkes University.

Currently, the MAC sponsors competition in eleven men’s sports: baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, indoor track and

field, lacrosse, soccer, swimming, tennis, and outdoor track and field. The eleven women’s sports are: basketball, cross country, field

hockey, indoor track and field, lacrosse, soccer, softball, swimming, tennis, outdoor track and field, and volleyball.
