Georgetown - Wed, May. 2, 2012
As the news circulates about Georgetown College applying to become an NCAA Division II member, the first question is which conference. The Greater Midwest Athletic Conference is a developing league out of Indianapolis that has been approved and will be official as competition starts Sept. 1, 2012.

For the 2012-13 season, the G-MAC will start to play a full schedule and will sponsor championships but will not have an automatic qualifier into the NCAA postseasons. As of 2013-14, it will be a fully active NCAA D II member.

"The G-MAC becomes the 24th conference in the NCAA D II," said GC Director of Athletics Brian Evans. "This is a conference that is a good location, we are right in the middle of all the schools, and good for travel. We feel we can be competitive right now."

Georgetown will file its application by June 1 and know the approval by July 15 and is currently a provisional member of the G-MAC. Kentucky Wesleyan, Cedarville, Trevecca Nazarene, Central State University, Urbana and Ursuline are members, while University of Virginia College at Wise is another provisional member as they apply for D II status on June 1 as well.

"Georgetown College has a long history of academic rigor and athletic excellence," said Dr. Bill Brown, Cedarville University President and chair of the G-MAC President's Council. "They will certainly become one of the anchors of the conference as we move ahead."
