The Presidents’ Athletic Conference




F
          ounded in 1955, the Presidents’
          Athletic Conference continues its
          mission of promoting intercolle-
          giate athletics and the pursuit of
academic excellence.
     Comprised of 10 select private
colleges - Bethany College, Chatham
University, Geneva College, Grove City
College, Saint Vincent College, Thiel Col-
lege, Thomas More College, Washington
and Jefferson College, Waynesburg
University and Westminster College - the
PAC remains a unique organization in
this day of high pressure intercollegiate
athletics. With academics at the center
of each member’s philosophy, the PAC
is built on the principle that an athletic
program is a part of college life, but not
an entity in itself.
     The PAC expanded to seven mem-
bers in 2005 with the addition of Thomas
More, formerly an NCAA Division III
independent. Saint Vincent College, a
former NAIA member, joined the confer-
ence as it began provisional membership
status in NCAA Division III in 2006-07.
Another former NAIA member, Geneva
College, became the conference’s ninth
member and began league play as it
started NCAA Division III provisional          2009 PAC Softball Standings
membership in 2007-08. Chatham Col-
lege became the league’s 10th member,                                                                     PAC               Overall

              estminster College has a proud athletics heritage that
              is steeped with a tradition of
              winning. Although the
              College was founded
in 1852, varsity athletics at Westmin-
ster did not become prevalent until
1884. Beginning in 1926, the sports
teams at Westminster became known
as the “Titans,” after a sportswriter for
the student newspaper, The Holcad,
nicknamed the resurgent basketball
                                                                              tans

younger, taller men that made up the
starting lineup. The athletics program at       The
Westminster became best known for the
success of its football and men’s
basketball teams. The Titan football team
won six NAIA National Championships
from 1970-94 and 72.8% (392-143-10) of its games since 1952. The men’s
basketball team, honored by the Associated Press as the nation’s top small
         college team in 1962, was the all-time winningest NAIA team before
           Westminster joined the NCAA in 1998.
