"The MIAC Presidents' Council cites athletic competitive parity in the conference as a primary concern", the conference said in a statement, adding St. Thomas "will leave the conference in good standing with a long and appreciated history of academic and athletic success". The decision will affect all sports.

Was there any possible option for St. Thomas to stay in the MIAC? "St Thomas will begin a multi-year transition immediately and meanwhile is eligible to compete as a full member of the MIAC through the end of spring 2021".

The 13-school Division III league has made a decision to kick out the University of St. Thomas, one of its founding members, due to concerns about "athletic competitive parity".

"After extensive membership discussions, the University of St. Thomas will be involuntarily removed from membership in the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC)".

The other schools in the MIAC have struggled to keep up with St. Thomas, which has an enrollment more than double the next-biggest schools in the conference.

"It didn't really escalate to me believing that that it would lead to being removed from the conference until the last couple months", Sullivan said.

Maddie Schaber, a sophomore, said she had hoped the school would be allowed to remain in the conference, home to archrivals like St. John's.

According to the school, other MIAC presidents had said they meant to leave the conference if St. Thomas remained. In the past five years (2013-2018), St. Thomas has won 62 conference championships with is 56%. MIAC was the home for us and it was a proud home for us.

St. Thomas President Julie Sullivan also released a statement, calling the decision "extremely disappointing".

St. Thomas is one of the founding members of the MIAC and the conference's statement said the school would be leaving the conference in good standing. "However, the presidents came to a consensus that the conference itself would cease to exist in its current form if St. Thomas remained".

The Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference has chose to oust the NCAA Division III league's largest school, the University of St Thomas, for competitive purposes. The next MIAC school is Carleton at No. 50. We made it perfectly clear and were very consistent we wanted to stay in the MIAC.

That league's full-time membership is now made up entirely of Wisconsin University System schools, though other schools are affiliate members in certain sports, including MIAC members Gustavus and Hamline in women's gymnastics. A vote on a formal dismissal would have followed.

"If there is an opportunity to continue the rivalry, we will do that, we would like to see that continue", St. Thomas athletic director Phil Esten said. Should the conference we join not offer a sport that we have now, we will explore all options (e.g., affiliate memberships) in order for all our varsity sports to continue playing.

"If you have a larger institution you have more student athletes to choose from".
