The USA South Athletic Conference: Pfeiffer's Future Home

The USA South Athletic Conference: Pfeiffer's Future Home

As Pfeiffer's Division III tradition starts soon, its home at the start of the 2017-18 season will be the USA South Athletic Conference. As presently constructed, USA South is home to 16 institutions, six in North Carolina, five in Georgia, three in Virginia, one in Alabama and one in Tennessee. Along with Pfeiffer, the conference will welcome Berea College and Brevard College and expand to 19 institutions in the fall. Of those 19 members, five are all women's schools.

The USA South Athletic Conference embraces the true student-athlete and is an outstanding academic conference. All of the schools in this league have the same academic mission and nine are affiliated with the United Methodist Church.

With the size of the conference, the league is split into two divisions with Pfeiffer joining the East Division. Along with the Falcons, the East will be comprised of Averett, Ferrum, Greensboro, Mary Baldwin, Meredith, Methodist, N.C. Wesleyan, Salem and William Peace.
