The Big South Conference Executive Committee has the authority to make decisions, when necessary, for the Big South Council of Chief Executive Officers. Additionally, the Executive Committee hears any appeals regarding penalties imposed by the Commissioner. Costin said, “As a charter member of the Big South Conference, Charleston Southern is proud to continue our 39-year association with universities committed to the highest ideals of competition, fair play, sportsmanship, and academic excellence for our student-athletes. The lessons student-athletes learn in terms of discipline, resilience, and collaboration with their coaches and teammates endure long after their playing days are over. Which is why I am honored to serve as conference vice president during one of the most critical seasons in the history of college athletics.”
Also appointed were UNC Asheville Chancellor Dr. Nancy Cable as president, Gardner-Webb University President Dr. William Downs as an at-large member to serve the Executive Committee, and USC Upstate Chancellor Dr. Bennie Harris to serve as the Big South’s representative on the NCAA Division I Presidential Forum.
Charleston Southern University fields 16 teams competing in NCAA Division I. The CSU Women’s Tennis team, Men’s Golf team, and the Men’s Cross Country team were Big South Champions in 2021-2022.
