NEW DAKOTA ATHLETIC CONFERENCE ( DAC- 10) COMBINES NDCAC WITH FOUR SOUTH DAKOTA UNIVERSITIES
A joint meeting between representatives of the North Dakota College Athletic Conference ( NDCAC) and Black Hills State University ( BHSU), Dakota State University ( DSU), Huron University, and South Dakota School of Mines and Technology ( SDSM& T) was held in Bismarck today announcing the formation of a new athletic conference. The Dakota Athletic Conference ( DAC- 10) will begin competition July 1, 2000.
“ This is an exciting continuation of the traditions that we have enjoyed at the SDIC,” said Dr. Richard Gowen, President of SDSM& T. “ The DAC- 10 will offer excellent advantages that will come to all of our programs through the new conference, and will provide an opportunity to schedule competitions between ten universities,” he added.
“ The conference is a result of an excellent group of people coming together with a spirit of cooperation,” said Dr. Gowen.
The new conference will include the schools of the NDCAC: Dickinson State University, Jamestown College, Mayville State University, Minot State University, University of Mary in Bismarck, Valley City University, and four South Dakota schools: Black Hills State University, Dakota State University, Huron University, and South Dakota School of Mines & Technology.
The next step is to work on a constitution, governance, and combining of rules and procedures from previous conference affiliations.
