 Presidents’ Athletic Conference

F
       ounded in 1955, the Presidents’ Athletic Confer-
       ence continues its mission of promoting inter-
       collegiate 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 College,
Thomas More College, Washington and Jefferson Col-
lege, 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 members in 2005 with
the addition of Thomas More, formerly an NCAA Di-
vision III independent. Saint Vincent College, a for-
mer National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics
(NAIA) member, joined the conference as its began               True to its mission, the PAC has produced numer-

membership in 2007-08. Chatham University became
the league’s 10th member, also in 2007-08.
    The PAC annually crowns champions in 19 sports.
In 2007-08, the conference had 35 teams represent the
conference in postseason play, including 19 in NCAA
Championship events. PAC championship teams re-
ceive automatic qualification (AQ) status for most
NCAA Division III national championship events.
    All-conference status is awarded in all 19 sports.
Head coaches select all-league squads for all team
sports, while in individual sports, such as cross country
and tennis, all-PAC accolades are based upon perfor-               2009-10 PAC Preseason Poll

     (CRESTVIEW HILLS, Ky.) – The Thomas More
College men’s basketball team begins a new era this
season as Jeff Rogers takes over as head coach. Rogers
moves up one chair on the Saints’ bench as he served
as an assistant to former head coach John Ellenwood,
who resigned after last season to take the head coach’s
position at Ashland University.
     Rogers begins his first season as a collegiate head
coach by welcoming back 11 letterwinners, including
one starter, to a program that finished 19-9 overall and
10-2 in the Presidents’ Athletic Conference (PAC) to
win its first-ever PAC Championship and advance to
the NCAA Division III Tournament for the first time
in school history. Key returners are senior point guard
Romell Salone (Cincinnati, Ohio/Walnut Hills), se-
nior power forward Daniel McKeehan (Maineville,
Ohio/Little Miami), junior center Brian Muse (Beth-
el, Ohio/Bethel), junior shooting guard Kurt Bovard
(Villa Hills, Ky./Covington Catholic), junior forward
Eddie Brown (Hamilton, Ohio/Stephen T. Badin)
and junior shooting guard Johnny Bovard (Cincin-
nati, Ohio/Elder).
     Salone returns for his third season as a starter and
averaged 9.9 points per game and dished out a team-
high 59 assists last season as he was named All-PAC
second team. McKeehan was also a second team All-           Junior center Daniel McKeehan (Maineville, Ohio/

year ago who we hope will blend well with a few trans-
fers and incoming freshman to give us strength in our
starting lineup and depth on the bench,” said Rogers.
     “We know that the PAC is one of the toughest Divi-
