As part of the MAC 100 celebration, the Middle Atlantic Conference is recognizing the top athletes in the conference's 100-year history, recognizing student-athletes from each sport in each era by naming them to "Century Teams."

Eras were determined based on conference membership and sport sponsorship. The number of individuals selected per team varies based on sport. Teams were selected from an online fan vote combined with the MAC Sports Information Directors vote. Team members will receive a commemorative gold coin. Century Teams will be announced at the conclusion of each respective sport season.

The following is a list of University of Scranton student-athletes who have been named to a MAC "Century Team."
