FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) - Carroll High School and Homestead High School have accepted an invitation to join the Summit Athletic Conference.

The addition of Carroll and Homestead to the SAC is for football, boys basketball and girls basketball in 2015.

The Chargers and and Spartans will be probationary members for two years, and will be considered for full membership beginning in 2017.

"We are excited to welcome Carroll and Homestead," Carlton Mable, South Side principal and SAC commissioner, said in a statement. “The SAC is recognized as a strong athletic conference and bringing in two more Allen County schools only makes us stronger."

It was learned last week that the SAC invited Carroll and Homestead to the league in those three sports.

The new SAC will consist of Carroll, Homestead, Bishop Dwenger, Bishop Luers, Concordia Lutheran, North Side, Northrop, South Side, Snider and Wayne high schools.

Carroll and Homestead are the two schools left out of new conference that will form of the six remaining NHC high schools (Bellmont, Columbia City, DeKalb, East Noble, New Haven and Norwell), Leo High School and Huntington North High School after the NHC disbands after 2014.

Athletic teams that are not football, boys basketball and girls basketball will remain independent after 2014.
