West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference

From BR Bullpen


The West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WVIAC) was a NCAA Division-II conference which historically operated exclusively in the state of West Virginia, but eventually expanded into Pennsylvania. Within West Virginia, the conference is more often referred to as the WVC.

From the 1950's through 1994, the WVIAC essentially was the NAIA's District 28. The WVIAC champion represented the district in the Area tournaments.

In 2006, WVU Tech announced that it was withdrawing from the league and dropping to the NAIA. The conference then renewed a study of expanding outside of the state. On March 10, 2006 the Pennsylvania colleges Seton Hill University and The University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown (Pitt-Johnstown or UPJ) were made members of the league. These two schools became full members in the fall of 2007.

The WVIAC disbanded on September 1, 2013. Concord, Charleston, Fairmont State, Glenville State, Shepherd, West Liberty, West Virginia State, and West Virginia Wesleyan and Wheeling Jesuit joined University of Virginia's College at Wise to form the new Mountain East Conference. Seton Hill and Pitt-Johnstown joined the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference. Alderson–Broaddus, Davis & Elkins, and Ohio Valley accepted invitations to join the Great Midwest Athletic Conference. Bluefield State was without a conference as of August 2012.
