Thomas More announced today that it will join the Mid-South Conference of the NAIA beginning in 2019-20. The Saints were recently admitted to the ACAA and will compete in the league for the upcoming 2018-19 season.
"We are happy that Thomas More has found a permanent conference home, and we would be happy to be the NCAA conference home to Thomas More for many years to come if that is what best serves the mission of Thomas More College." said Commissioner Kelly J. Higgins. "This next step for Thomas More gives the Saints' administration a year with the ACAA to explore all the possibilities involving their affiliations with the NAIA and NCAA."
