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.

And when he happend 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;”

“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 (18171862)
