Capital Athletic Conference
Formed in 1989, the Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) is a 10-member coalition of four-year, co-educational institutions that promotes intercollegiate athletic competition among schools located in close geographic proximity that have similar educational and athletic philosophies. The CAC strives to develop a harmony of good feeling and a spirit of competitive sportsmanship, fellowship, and uniformity of practice among member institutions. Conference members are required to operate their intercollegiate athletic programs under the highest ethical standards and to maintain a program consistent with the overall educational philosophy of the member institutions. Six CAC member institutions sponsor the sports of men's and women's swimming - Frostburg State, Mary Washington, Marymount, St. Mary's, Salisbury, and York.
