Conference Carolinas announced today that King College and North Greenville University have been accepted for membership in the league. Conference member institutions voted unanimously to accept both schools and expand the league to 13 teams.

“Conference Carolinas enthusiastically welcomes King College and North Greenville University into our league and looks forward to extending our competitive spirit to the Tornado and Crusaders,” said Dr. Betsy Fleming, President of the Conference Carolinas Executive Committee and of Converse College. “Both schools share Conference Carolinas’ commitment to developing scholar-athletes who excel both in the classroom and on the playing field, and we are pleased to strengthen our league through their membership.”

King College in Bristol, TN and North Greenville University in Tigerville, SC will become full members of Conference Carolinas for the 2011-12 season. Both schools are NCAA Division II members and already play many Conference Carolinas members. The scheduling of sports participation starting in the fall of 2011 allows sufficient time for scheduling changes and orientation to conference membership responsibilities and requirements. Both schools enter the conference as independent Division II members.

Lake Erie College and Ohio Dominican University officially begin membership with the GLIAC
http://www.gliac.org

BAY CITY, MI - The Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) welcomed its two newest members as Lake Erie College (Ohio) and Ohio Dominican University officially begin membership in the conference on July 1, 2010.

The GLIAC Presidents Council, made up of the presidents of the league's then 12 members institutions, voted to officially accept Lake Erie and Ohio Dominican as provisional members in a meeting on June 17, 2009 held at the University of Findlay. The vote came two weeks after the GLIAC Executive Council voted to recommend to the Presidents Council that both institutions be granted membership at its annual spring meeting, after LEC and ODU made formal presentations to the league in Gaylord, Michigan on June 1, 2009.

Lake Erie was granted full membership into the conference after earning active NCAA Division II members status on Sept. 1, 2009. LEC will be eligible for all GLIAC championship events. Ohio Dominican was granted provisional status as it is still in the process of gaining full NCAA Division II membership. Full member status within the GLIAC will be granted to ODU when it achieves full Division II membership.

"This marks a very important day regarding the growth of the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference," stated GLIAC Commissioner Dell Robinson. "The addition of these two institutions continues to align us with our strategic planning goals."

Founded in 1856, Lake Erie currently has over 1,300 students and will offer 23 varsity sports in 2010-11, including all twenty GLIAC sponsored sports. Located in Painesville, Ohio, LEC is an independent, liberal arts institution that challenges its students to, "get in and stand out" in academics, athletics and student activities. With 34 undergraduate majors offered and the option to design an individualized major to fit career and academic goals, Lake Erie's innovative learning experiences focus on helping students to meet career and life challenges, preparing for a world that is increasingly independent.

"The process of transitioning to Division II and then acquiring league affiliation was a long one, but it is well worth the effort," said Lake Erie Director of Athletics Griz Zimmermann. "The GLIAC has a reputation for outstanding competitive athletics and I believe we are now in the perfect setting for our teams to thrive."

Ohio Dominican, located in Columbus, Ohio, currently offers 14 intercollegiate sports. Founding in the Catholic Dominican tradition in 1911, Ohio Dominican is a private four-year liberal arts institution. With over 3,100 students and offering undergraduate degrees in 50 majors and six graduate programs, ODU uses a student-oriented approach, with a commitment to quality teaching and learning and a number of academic programs of distinction.

"We feel very fortunate to be joining the most prestigious NCAA Division II conference in the country," stated Ohio Dominican Director of Athletics Bill Blazer. "We look forward to our 2010-11 schedule and competing with all the institutions in Ohio and Michigan."

Founded in 1972, the GLIAC has been a leader in the advancement and promotion of intercollegiate athletics for men and women for 38 years. The league boasts 14 full members, nine of which are located in Michigan, and five in Ohio. The league's Ohio institutions include Ashland University, the University of Findlay, Lake Erie College, Ohio Dominican University, and Tiffin University. The GLIAC's members in Michigan include: Ferris State University, Grand Valley State University, Hillsdale College, Lake Superior State University, Michigan Technological University, Northern Michigan University, Northwood University, Saginaw Valley State University, and Wayne State University.

The GLIAC conducts championships in 20 sports, 10 for men and 10 for women. The GLIAC Executive Council is comprised of three representatives from each institution: its director of athletics, senior woman administrator, and faculty athletics representative.
