On November 25, 2019, the twelve member schools of the Miami Valley Conference (MVC) voted to extend membership invitations in all sports to Purcell Marian and Roger Bacon High Schools.  The following day, both schools accepted the invitation and will begin competition in all sports in the 2021-2022 season.  This will bring the total number of schools to fourteen (eight private and six public).  

The MVC features a unique two-division alignment which allows for the most competitive scenarios for all schools.  The addition of Purcell Marian and Roger Bacon will offer more options for schools to compete with similar size schools within the conference.

The Miami Valley Conference is one of the premier athletic conferences in Ohio, boasting nearly twenty-five State Championship teams in the last twenty years.  The addition of Purcell Marian and Roger Bacon will only enhance this reputation ... both athletically and academically.  The entire MVC would like to extend its congratulations to both Purcell Marian and Roger Bacon High Schools!

Any questions, contact Eric Taylor, MVC President, at eric.taylor@chca-oh.org.
