For those who wish to not read the article  ;):

“The Atlantic East will initially sponsor and host championships for 19 sports within the NCAA Division III.  With seven schools, the Atlantic East will be eligible for automatic bids to the NCAA Tournament beginning in the 2020-21 seasons in the sports which all schools offer.”

Yes - I realize that - I'm just saying they don't usually get into those who won't have the AQ. So the wording is key: "in sports which all schools offer." That basically says, of those sports which all seven of us sponsor - we will have an AQ in 20-21... but for those sports which not all seven of them sponsor, they won't get an AQ unless they can get affiliates.

That is what I mean by they won't say it necessarily in an article about the status of those other sports.

The AEC now has a commissioner! They hired Jessica Huntley, who had been the assistant commissioner at the Centennial for a number of years. Announcement was made today. Conference begins play, as we know, in August.

This month's Around the Nation podcast goes inside the formation of the Atlantic East Conference, including an interview with Gwynedd Mercy head coach and AD Keith Mondillo. Hope you enjoy it.

Well, it's a start.

I know Twitter and Instagram have been up for awhile... Facebook possibly as well. Nice to see the website up and running, but this organization has been rushing things when most use more time. Remember, they "announced" less than a a year ago (we broke the story 15 months ago) ... most conferences take two years to come together.
