Texas Lutheran to Join the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference

SUWANEE, Ga. — The Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) announced today that Texas Lutheran University has accepted an invitation to join the Conference.

"We are pleased and honored that Texas Lutheran University will join the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference beginning July 1, 2013,” said Austin College president Marjorie Hass, who currently serves as the chair of the SCAC Board of Directors. “Managing the membership of an athletic conference is challenging work. It is wonderful to know that another private, liberal arts and sciences college from the southwest region with an engaging curriculum and similar commitment to the philosophy of the NCAA Division III athletics program will join the Conference. The addition of Texas Lutheran will bring the SCAC membership back to eight, which will be helpful to the overall scheduling of the Conference. We look forward to many competitive contests in the future."

Currently a member of the American Southwest Conference, Texas Lutheran will join the SCAC at the beginning of the 2013-14 academic year, becoming the eighth member of the reconstructed league.
