ASUN women's lax to split into two leagues - one ASUN and the other Southern
http://www.laxpower.com/laxnews/news.php?story=50177

The ASUN will have full members Jacksonville, Kennesaw St, and Stetson and affiliate members Coastal Carolina, Howard, and ODU. Surprised NJIT doesn't offer women's lax.

The Southern Conference will have Furman, Wofford, Mercer and affiliates Central Michigan, Detroit, and Delaware St. Wofford is starting women's lax. With just 1500 students, Jerry Richardson of the Carolina Panthers has given Wofford some impressive academic and athletics buildings.

Kent St will be starting lax later, presumably as an affiliate in the Southern conf. Cleveland St may also add it, as they have started men's lax.

Would assume the Big East with will be splitting it's women's lax league too, into a Big East one and an American one. Next year, ECU is starting a team so presume ODU would go American and Delaware St would move to the ASun.

Heh, poor Delaware State. That's a lot of traveling to have to do.

Bellarmine is also in the Southern for Men's LAX. They are also looking at adding women's soon which I presume they will be an affiliate in Southern Conference as well for women's LAX. I think they are hinting to go to D1 in the future since they offered more than 20 sports. They could go to ASUN or Big South for now. And if they do start football in the future? That team could already have a home for the ASUN/Big South football.

Bellarmine is no longer allowed to move up in single sports if DII sponsors it, which DII does in W lax. They would have to get a full offer from a DI conference and move all their sports. The ASUN might be a good match, as they can be a travel partner with Lipscomb.

Why doesn't more of the MAC offer lax?

Current Big East WLAX has:

Butler
Marquette
Nova
Georgetown

UCONN
Cincinnati
Temple

Vandy
Florida

Denver

How many teams are needed for a conference? ECU and ODU added to the AAC three would only be 5. Who else leaves?

NJIT cannot afford another thing in sports.They are number in division #1 in student support of athletics,95%.They are paying 1.5 million per month for the bond issue for the new events center.They are cancelling classes to make up the 4 million spring term short fall.

Denver would stay with the Big East. ODU would have to be an Big East affiliate rather than American. Pardon me as still counted Cincy as Big East. Six are needed for an autobid, if a single sport conference splits.

Cost supposedly. MAC teams are just getting off the ground in W Lax. Buffalo should have both M/W, but the MAC at the time of their addition required baseball. A MAC-Horizon women's lax league could get off the ground in a couple years.

I guess there's no way to keep the four Eastern affiliates together and someone's going to be an odd duck in the western-most conference of the two, but it seems odd that they couldn't accommodate Howard and Delaware State being together.
