DOMINICAN UNIVERSITY AND ALVERNO COLLEGE TO JOIN THE LAKE MICHIGAN CONFERENCE
By unanimous vote of the athletic directors through the college presidents, the Lake Michigan Conference will be adding two members over the course of the next two years. Dr. G. Steven Larson, LMC Commissioner, announced today that Alverno College in Milwaukee, who is currently a provisional member, will become an active member in the fall of 2004. Dominican University in River Forest, Illinois, will become a provisional member in the fall of 2004 and an active member in the fall of 2005.

“We are very pleased to have Alverno College and Dominican University join the LMC,” said Larson. “Both institutions adhere to the philosophy of the LMC and NCAA III. They promote the best interests of their student-athletes and simultaneously provide quality, competitive programs. Their addition will also be a positive in terms of balance in scheduling and in location for all conference members. We look forward to the new friendly rivalries and excitement that will be added through this expansion.”

The Alverno College Inferno will compete in women’s athletics only. They currently sponsor basketball, cross country, soccer, softball, and volleyball.

Sue Hansen, Alverno athletic director stated, "Alverno College is extremely proud to be accepted as a member of the Lake Michigan Conference. Since the inception of our athletic program in 2000, it has been a primary goal to align ourselves with these outstanding institutions that share a similar philosophy toward academic excellence. In addition, our affiliation with the LMC will provide a positive athletic experience for our student-athletes because it is consistent with the educational mission and goals of Alverno. The administration and coaching staff understand what an advantage it will be for our student-athletes to compete in Conference Tournaments and have the opportunity for NCAA tournament qualification. We look forward to the challenges and benefits membership in the Lake Michigan Conference will provide."

The Dominican University Stars will compete in both women and men’s sports. Their women’s program sponsors basketball, cross country, soccer, softball, tennis, and volleyball. On the men’s side they sponsor baseball, basketball, cross country, soccer, and tennis. Dominican currently competes in the Northern Illinois Iowa Conference.

According to Barb Bolich, Dominican University athletic director, “We, at Dominican, are very pleased and excited to be affiliated with the institutions that make up the Lake Michigan Conference. As I've stated before, I am absolutely confident that the Lake Michigan Conference is the "right fit" for Dominican University. The LMC is a reputable, successful and stable organization that is committed to quality - both in the classroom and on the playing field.”

Current members of the Lake Michigan Conference are Concordia University (WI), Edgewood College, Lakeland College, Maranatha Baptist Bible College, Marian College, Milwaukee School of Engineering, and Wisconsin Lutheran College. The LMC is an NCAA III member conference.
