St. Norbert officially part of new conference

The St. Norbert College Green Knights were officially welcomed into the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference on Thursday after being a Midwest Conference member for thirty-eight years. Their new home, the NACC, consists of thirteen schools in Wisconsin and Illinois. Member institutions in Wisconsin are Alverno College, Milwaukee School of Engineering, Wisconsin Lutheran College, Concordia University in Mequon, Edgewood College, Lakeland University, and Marian University. Schools from Illinois are Concordia University Chicago, Dominican University, Aurora University, Benedictine University, Illinois Institute of Technology, and Rockford University. The Green Knights already had affiliation with the NACC in three of their thirteen sports. Those sports are men’s volleyball and men’s and women’s golf. 

 

Per the SNC athletics official website, dating back to 1983 when the Green Knights became a Midwest Conference school full-time, they amassed 125 Midwest Conference titles in fourteen different sports. They also made it to sixty-nine NCAA Division III tournaments. Athletics Director Cam Fuller said in a statement, “The NACC offers a condensed geographic footprint that allows our student-athletes a more integrated college experience.” The Green Knights are the fourteenth member of their new conference.
