Middle Atlantic Conferences

Founded in 1912, the Middle Atlantic Conferences (MAC) is an umbrella organization of three athletic conferences which competes in the NCAA's Division III. The 18-member teams are located in the Mid-Atlantic United States.

The organization is divided into two main conferences: the Commonwealth Conference and the Freedom Conference. A third conference — named the Middle Atlantic Conference — combines members from both conferences and is used for certain sports that only a smaller set of members participate in, such as track and field and cross country.

Famous quotes containing the words middle and/or atlantic:

    For rhetoric, he could not ope
    His mouth, but out there flew a trope;
    And when he happen’d to break off
    I’ th’ middle of his speech, or cough,
    H’ had hard words ready to show why,
    And tell what rules he did it by;
    Samuel Butler (1612–1680)

    All the morning we had heard the sea roar on the eastern shore, which was several miles distant.... It was a very inspiriting sound to walk by, filling the whole air, that of the sea dashing against the land, heard several miles inland. Instead of having a dog to growl before your door, to have an Atlantic Ocean to growl for a whole Cape!
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
