The Midwest Athletic Conference is an OHSAA athletic league located in west-central Ohio formed in 1972. The Midwest Athletic Conference (MAC) is among the elite conferences in the nation.[citation needed] Dubbed as one of the toughest, if not the, toughest small school conference in America.[citation needed]

Although the MAC consists of smaller schools, it is geographically located in the same area of the state as the Western Buckeye League. Most schools out of both leagues typically host hotly contested matchups in nearly every sport.
