The Great American Conference, a new NCAA Division II league formed by Arkansas Tech University and eight other charter members, put its Web site online for the first time on Tuesday, Aug. 16.
The Web site --- www.greatamericanconference.com --- will provide GAC fans with the latest schedules, standings and news from around the league.
In addition to Arkansas Tech, the other charter members of the GAC are the University of Arkansas at Monticello, East Central University, Harding University, Henderson State University, Ouachita Baptist University, Southeastern Oklahoma State University, Southern Arkansas University and Southwestern Oklahoma State University.
The Great American Conference was founded with the goals of limiting time away from class and reducing travel costs. The presidents and chancellors of the nine charter members and the athletic directors of those nine institutions announced their intention to form the conference following a meeting in the Chambers Cafeteria East Dining Hall at Arkansas Tech on July 13, 2010.
The NCAA approved the GAC as an NCAA Division II conference on March 9, 2011.
Competition in the Great American Conference will begin this fall. Arkansas Tech will compete for GAC titles in baseball, men's basketball, women's basketball, cross country, football, men's golf, women's golf, softball, tennis and volleyball.
