ABOUT THE APPALACHIAN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE
The Appalachian Athletic Conference evolved from the Volunteer State Athletic Conference (VSAC), an NAIA conference organized in the 1940s and dissolved in the early 1980s when institutions in the eastern part of the state seceded to form the Tennessee Virginia Athletic Conference (TVAC). The Conference name changed to the Appalachian Athletic Conference (AAC) in 2001 with the addition of Bluefield College, Montreat College, Alice Lloyd College, and Union College. In 2019, the Conference became the largest NAIA affiliated conference with 16 full members in eight southeastern states: Allen (S.C.), Bluefield (Va.), Brenau (Ga.), Bryan (Tenn.), Columbia (S.C.), Columbia International (S..C), Kentucky Christian, Milligan (Tenn.), Montreat (N.C.), Point (Ga.), Reinhardt (Ga.), SCAD Atlanta (Ga.), St. Andrews (N.C.), Tennessee Wesleyan, Truett McConnell (Ga.), and Union (Ky.). The Conference has five affiliate members as well: Asbury (Ky.), Cumberlands (Ky.), SCAD Savannah (Ga.), Webber International (Fla.), and West Virginia Tech. The AAC sponsors championships in 22 sports: cross country, soccer, basketball, swimming & diving, indoor track & field, wrestling, lacrosse, outdoor track & field, golf, baseball, and tennis for men; cross country, soccer, volleyball, basketball, swimming & diving, indoor track & field, lacrosse, outdoor track & field, golf, softball, and tennis for women.
