Saint Bonnie’s was playing lax in the MAAC before this move. That brings the MAAC’s total number of lax teams down to 6, which is still enough for an auto-bid. However, I’m wondering if they’ll try to lure Fairfield out of the CAA. The Stags main conference is the MAAC and I remember someone mentioned that as a possibility on a different thread.

I’ll miss having UMass in the CAA. They have a really solid program and the games against them were always interesting.

I just looked at the home football schedule, and am more excited than ever for the 2023 lacrosse season to begin. I'll miss UMass too. Real program, big school, heavy drinking, occasional rioting. Solid.

Monmouth and Stony are solid adds. Hampton has the worst Men's Lax program in D1.
Welcome Coach Carty. Time to go to work!

A10s core is regular members UMass, Richmond, Bonnies and St. Joes. Affiliates will be High Point and Hobart to get to an NCAA AQ.

NEC is losing three (St. Joes, Bryant and Hobart) reducing them to 5 so they need an add to keep the AQ.

MAAC is losing Bonnies and Monmouth reducing them to 5. Perhaps they will induce Fairfield (a regular MAAC member) to join for lacrosse to help them keep the AQ.

With UMass gone, and if Fairfield bolts, the CAA has seven - UD, Towson, Drexel, Hofstra and new adds Stony, Monmouth and Hampton.

America East remains at 7, losing Stony but gaining Bryant.

MSM is moving to the MAAC. NEC is bringing in stone hill college from D2.

In Hampton's defense, I think they are a newby program.

NEC has dropped sponsorship of MLAX. Was announced in May but I missed that.
