Thomasville, NC --- In its final year as the Carolinas-Virginia Athletics Conference, the league is naming All-Time Teams in all of the conference sports. The league will change its name to Conference Carolinas on June 1, 2007.  To help commemorate the new era for the conference, All-Time Teams are being selected and announced. 


With the recent conclusion of the CVAC Men’s Golf Championships, a thirteen member team was selected as nominated and voted on by league sports information directors. Pfeiffer University leads the All-Time Carolinas-Virginia Athletics Conference men’s golf team with five members being named to the team, followed by Barton College with three, and Coker College with two.  Only those student athletes who competed or have competed in the CVAC for a minimum of two seasons are eligible for inclusion.  Active student-athletes who meet the criteria were also eligible.  


"Conference Members are excited to honor the best athletes of an era when competition was intense," stated Commissioner Alan Patterson.   Certainly the level of competition will only increase in the Conference Carolinas.  The singe change is that the name better reflects the location of members based in a geographical area that is highly regarded throughout the country."


The All-Time All-CVAC teams are comprised from nominees from current member schools Anderson University, Barton College, Belmont Abbey College, Coker College, Converse College, Erskine College, Lees-McRae College, Limestone College, Mount Olive College, Pfeiffer University, Queens University of Charlotte, St. Andrews Presbyterian College and former members High Point University and Longwood University.
