Division II Approval Pending

Emory & Henry College has announced that it plans to join the South Atlantic Conference (SAC) in all of its NCAA-sanctioned sports. If approved for the move from Division III to Division II, the Wasps would earn provisional status in the Fall 2021 with plans to play a full conference schedule for the 2022-23 season.
Posted October 01, 2020

The next step in the potential move to Division II is completing the formal application to the NCAA that is due by Feb. 1, 2021. The NCAA Membership Committee will meet in mid-July to vote on the application. If accepted, Emory & Henry will begin the first of three provisional years in August 2021. If all benchmarks are met, the College would be eligible for full membership in August 2024.

Intermont Equestrian at Emory & Henry College will continue to compete in the Intercollegiate Dressage Association and the Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association.

The South Atlantic Conference is in its 45th year of athletic tradition and excellence. The SAC was founded in 1975, solely as a football conference and became a multi-sport conference in 1989.
