Middle Georgia State College announced Tuesday they had received an invitation to join the Southern States Athletic Conference. The invitation was extended from the SSAC Council of Presidents meeting held in Montgomery, Ala. that day. It's the second part of the college's transition to four-year athletics, having joined the NAIA in April.
Said MGSC Athletic Director Charles Mullis in a statement "I am very excited by this news and what it will mean for our student-athletes and our coaches. We will be playing against the best teams the NAIA has to offer and it is a testament to the strength of our athletic program and its storied past that such a prestigious conference wants us to join.
