Berry Joins New Conference For All Sports

It's exciting times for Berry College Athletics, as they have joined with seven other southeastern institutions to form a new athletic Conference.  Berry is teaming up with SEWANEE, Birmingham-Southern, Centre, Hendrix, Oglethorpe, Millsaps, and Rhodes to form this new conference.  To date there is no official name for the conference, but the schools are working under the temporary name, College Athletic Conference (CAC) which was the original name of the SCAC conference. 

Here is a link to the press release put out by Berry College:

We are thrilled with this latest development and what it will mean for Berry Lacrosse moving forward.  Starting in 2011-2012 all 8 schools will sponsor Men's Lacrosse, with conference play starting in 2012-2013 academic year.  We look forward to the start of many great rivalries.
