NEW ORLEANS — The Gulf Coast Athletic Conference announced Friday that Voorhees College decided not to accept an invitation to join the conference.
The GCAC announced March 17 that Voorhees, of Denmark, S.C., was one of three colleges to join for 2010-11. The other new members are Edward Waters College of Jacksonville, Fla., and Fisk University of Nashville, Tenn.
Edward Waters and Fisk will join Southern University at New Orleans and charter members Xavier University of Louisiana, Dillard University and Tougaloo College to give the GCAC six members for the upcoming academic year.
The Friday announcement also said that "further expansion of the GCAC remains one of the conference's most important goals."
Voorhees will return to membership in the NAIA's Association of Independent Institutions.
