Cincinnati Athletic Club - All-Blue Logo

In the summer of 1853, a group of men from Barrett's Gymnasium formed the Young Men's Gymnastic Association which later came to be known as The Dave Herche Cincinnati Athletic Club (CAC).

The CAC was the center of fitness and athletic competition in the Midwest with opponents including Purdue, Ohio State, and the University of Louisville in boating, cycling, boxing, swimming, shot put, weightlifting, wrestling, track and field, basketball, and football.

It's strong tradition continues well into the 21st century.
