The America East announced recently that UMass Lowell will join the conference beginning in the fall. The announcement was made at a press conference at the Tsongas Center on the Lowell campus. The addition of the River Hawks will keep the conference membership at nine schools. Boston University departs for the Patriot League in the fall.
“We are excited to have UMass Lowell join the America east as a member Institution,” Binghamton Director of Athletics Patriot Elliott said. “Their demonstrated commitment to academic and athletic excellence and their plan for quality growth is quite impressive. They are a perfect partner to assist in moving our conference forward in the coming years.”
