What is the ECAC?
ECAC - The Eastern College Athletic Conference is a college athletic conference comprising schools that compete in 19 sports (15 men’s and 17 women’s). It has 303 member institutions in NCAA Divisions I, II, and III, ranging in location from Maine to South Carolina and west to Missouri. Most or all members belong to at least one other athletic conference. (Per wikipedia)
I was thinking about the fact that the City Conference had only a few teams competing and the Six Rivers, Ridge & Valley and M&O conferences each have three or less schools. ECAC ends up being a catch all conference and also stated in the first part of this post is that most members belong to at least one other conference. Below is a map with Albany, Milwaukee King and Peshtigo plotted (click to expand). If every year schools with lesser turnouts for conference pinpointed a host early on – let’s say Fond du Lac, Oshkosh or Sheboygan this year – all of the teams could compete in an actual conference meet.
