Oxendine is a 1952 alumnus of Catawba and a member of the Board of Trustees. A native of Pembroke, NC, Oxendine served as chancellor of UNC Pembroke from 1989-1999. During his tenure there, the institution changed its name from Pembroke State University, its Carnegie Foundation classification to Comprehensive I, and its athletic conference from NAIA to NCAA II. New degree programs were also added under Oxendine’s leadership, including a RN-BSN nursing program (offered jointly with Fayetteville State University), an MBA program, MA degrees in Agency Counseling and School Counseling, and bachelors degrees in Criminal Justice, Community Health Education, American Studies, Mass Communications, and Birth-Kindergarten. The landscape of the UNC Pembroke also changed during this period, with new, expanded, and renovated buildings, and an increase in student diversity. Oxendine graduated from Catawba College in 1952, and earned his master’s of education degree from Boston University in 1953 and his doctorate of education from Boston University in 1959. He worked in automobile factories in Detroit, Michigan, played professional baseball in the Pittsburgh Pirates Minor League System for three years, and served in the U.S. Army from 1953-1955 in Korea and Hawaii.

For 30 years, between 1959 and 1989, he served as dean and professor at Temple University in Philadelphia. Oxendine has authored two books: “American Indian Sports Heritage,” two editions (1988/1995), University of Nebraska Press; and “Psychology of Motor Learning,” two editions (1968/1984), Prentice-Hall, Incorporated. He also has authored three dozen professional and research articles, and five chapters in books on motor learning. His honors and accolades are numerous. Catawba honored him in 2007 with its O.B. Michael Award, inducted him into its Sports Hall of Fame in 1978, and awarded him an Honorary Doctor of Science degree in 1979. Boston University honored him with its Alumni Award for Distinguished Public Service in 1978, while Temple University awarded him its Stauffer Award for Outstanding Faculty Service in 1989. He received the R. Tait McKenzie Award from the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance in 1993 and the Charles D. Henry Award for the enhancement of ethnic minority members in 1989. Oxendine serves or has served on the board of directors for the Lost Colony; the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools’ Commission on Colleges; the National Institute of Health’s Office of Minority Programs; the Fact-Finding Team of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities; and the Advisory Council for the N.C.

HISTORY

OF THE

The South Atlantic Conference is in its 35th year of athletic tradition and excellence. The conference has enjoyed tremendous success due to dedicated people building a premier athletic conference throughout its history. The distant forerunner of the South Atlantic Conference was the North State Atlantic Conference (NSIAC). The NSIAC was formed when the “Little Six”, as it was called, broke from the North Carolina Intercollegiate Athletic Conference in 1930. These charter members included Lenoir-Rhyne College, Atlantic Christian, Catawba College, Guilford College, Elon College, and High Point University. The North State continued to grow over the next 30 years, adding Western Carolina (1933), East Carolina (1947) and Pfeiffer (1960). A name change became necessary when the league accepted Newberry as its first South Carolina member in 1961. The league took on the name Carolinas Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (CIAC) on May 20th of that year. The CIAC saw several changes in the following years as East Carolina withdrew from the league in 1962. Appalachian State and Western Carolina followed in 1971 and 1976. All three landed in the Southern Conference. The South Atlantic Conference was founded in 1975 solely as a football conference. The league received its name from a contest in which Kurt Brenneman of Greensboro, NC became the first to submit the SAC-8 moniker. The SAC-8 consisted of Carson-Newman College, Catawba College, Elon College, Gardner-Webb University, Lenoir-Rhyne College, Mars Hill College, Newberry College, and Presbyterian College. Dr. Fred Bentley, of Mars Hill College, was named league president for its inaugural year, by a vote of the member institutions. After the first season of play in the SAC-8, the Bears of Lenoir-Rhyne College captured the first football title. In 1989, the league’s 15th year of operation, the South Atlantic Conference became a comprehensive, multisport conference. Doug Echols was named the league’s first Commissioner. That year the South Atlantic Conference sponsored 10 sports - football, men’s www.gocatawbaindians.com

Later the conference grew to 14 championship sports by adding women ‘s soccer (1990), men’s and women’s cross country (1993) and women’s golf (1999). The South Atlantic Conference was composed of the same eight member institutions 24

from 1975 until 1988, when Wingate University replaced Newberry College as the eighth member institution. Newberry later rejoined the conference in 1996. In July of 1998, Tusculum College was admitted as a member of the league, and Lincoln Memorial University began play in the conference in the 2006-07 academic year. Brevard College was admitted as a provisional member in 2007. In 2008, Echols retired after serving as Commissioner for 19 years and Patrick Britz was hired as the new Commissioner. In July 2010, Anderson (S.C.) University joined the conference to become the league’s 10th member. Today the conference is a group of 10 private, liberal and civic arts colleges and universities, similar in size and athletic philosophy. Since becoming eligible for NCAA Division II postseason play in 1993, the league has sent representatives from all of its sponsored sports to NCAA postseason play. The league membership now includes Anderson University in Anderson, S.C.; Brevard College in Brevard, N.C.; Carson-Newman in Jefferson City, Tenn.; Catawba College in Salisbury, N.C.; Lenoir-Rhyne University in Hickory, N.C.; Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tenn.; Mars Hill College in Mars Hill, N.C.; Newberry College in Newberry, S.C.; Tusculum College in Greeneville, Tenn.; and Wingate University in Wingate, N.C. 2 0 1 1 C ATAW B A C RO S S C O U N T RY
