In June 2011, King College was granted admission into Conference Carolinas as the
13th institution to become a member and the only located outside of North or South Carolina.
King joins North Greenville University as the newest members to join the league for
the 2011-12 season.
Conference Carolinas has a long-standing history since its inception in 1930, then
known as the North State Intercollegiate Conference. Barton College remains the only
school of the seven charter institutions to stand the test of time. King will compete
against schools that fit the College's institutional and athletic profile including
Barton, North Greenville, Limestone College, St. Andrew's Presbyterian College, Converse
College (women's only), Lees-McRae College, Coker College, and Belmont Abbey.
Until 1993, Conference Carolinas had been affiliated with the NAIA (National Association
of Intercollegiate Athletics). That year brought dramatic change when the conference,
following the addition of three more members, decided to make the shift toward NCAA
Division II status. In 1995, Conference Carolinas dropped its NAIA affiliation and
dedicated itself to the NCAA.
Lees-McRae is quickly proving to be King's conference rival by both geographical proximity
and play on the field. The Bobcats have the most overall success in the league across
its athletic programs especially excelling in women's volleyball and men's and women's
soccer. Queens (N.C.) has one of the strongest cross country, track field and tennis
programs while Barton has made a name for itself on the hardwood with both its basketball
Coker and Erskine will provide King with challenges out on the softball diamond. North
Greenville comes into the conference as the defending NCCAA World Series Champion
while Mount Olive has made its claim to fame on the baseball field to provide the
Tornado some premiere competition.
King's Men's Volleyball team has already made a splash in Conference Carolinas serving
as an affiliate member in 2010-11. The Tornado made a run in the second half of the
season and advanced to the conference championship game, nearly upsetting Mount Olive
for the tournament title.
King has begun competing with the start of women's volleyball and both soccer programs
with great success in their introductory year.
