2006-07 Wrap-up

The final awards and honors of the 2007-08 year have come in. 2006-07 was very successful for the NCAC.

In total, 44 teams from all 22 North Coast sports, and all 10 NCAC schools, were represented in NCAA post-season competition during the 2006-07 academic year. The NCAC added two Division III championships as Kenyon won men's and women's swimming, bringing our 23-year total of national championships to 55. We had three other teams reach the national semifinals of their respective NCAA Tournaments: Ohio Wesleyan men's soccer, Wittenberg volleyball and Wooster men's basketball. In addition, 179 student-athletes from around the conference earned All-America and/or Academic All-America honors.

Now it's time to look ahead to the 2007-08 season. If you can believe it, preseason awards are starting to be announced in football and other fall sports. We can't wait to see what the new year brings!
