WACO, Texas – Entering the 18th year of its existence, the Red River Athletic Conference is making a logo change for the first time when it introduces its new mark today. The logo is the first step in the conference's rebranding campaign, which will continue throughout the 2015-16 academic year.
The design of the logo encompasses various qualities of the RRAC. The five stars represent the tenets of the NAIA Champions of Character program, while the wavy font and stripes relate to the river that stretches across the four states the RRAC encompasses. While red is naturally the most dominant color, it is a deeper red to more closely match the mud in the namesake river. The RRAC's blue was changed to navy to convey integrity (character), while red signifies power (athletics). The overall look is undeniably American.
WACO, Texas -- The Red River Athletic Conference released the conference's 2014-15 academic awards with the University of St. Thomas (Texas) earning the school GPA award with the best overall academic performance by all of its student-athletes.
