ACM Athletic Tournaments
ACM's Athletic Tournaments will continue in 2015 as eight teams meet at Macalester College on September 11-13 for the 2015 ACM Volleyball Tournament.
Next year, soccer will be featured when Lake Forest College hosts the 2016 ACM Soccer Tournament. These tourneys follow a busy year in 2014, when ACM competitions were held in both volleyball and soccer.
The tournaments are organized by the ACM Athletics Directors to promote consortial athletic ties to complement the strong academic connections among the 14 member institutions. Read about the tradition of competition and collaboration in athletics among colleges in the ACM that stretches back more than 90 years.
2014 ACM Soccer Showcase
Macalester, Carleton, and St. Olaf colleges hosted a tournament on September 5-7, 2014 bringing together five ACM college men's soccer teams (Coe, Knox, Lake Forest, Macalester, and St. Olaf) and six ACM college women's soccer teams (Carleton, Coe, Grinnell, Knox, Lake Forest, and Macalester).
In addition to two days of matches, the Showcase included an urban immersion experience in which the student-athletes and their coaches toured the Mill City Museum in Minneapolis to learn about the area's history as a major producer of flour.
