NAC: Pending departures leaves conference seeking new member

Pending departures leave NAC seeking new members

...Only one current NAC school, Maine Maritime Academy of Castine, was among the original six members of the North Atlantic Women’s Conference in 1996, and it remained that way when three more schools joined three years later.

By 2002 the NAC was flourishing numerically, with 13 full-time participants and two associate members.

Today that membership is trending downward. Colby-Sawyer College of New London, New Hampshire, announced in June 2016 its intention to join the Great Northeast Athletic Conference beginning with the 2018-2019 academic year and Castleton (Vermont) University recently announced its acceptance into the Little East Conference beginning with the 2018-2019 campaign.

“The Little East aligns well with us both academically and athletically, and we think it’s a perfect fit,” said Castleton president David Wolk in announcing the switch in conference affiliation after 16 years as a NAC member.

Two more schools to leave NAC

The ranks of the North Atlantic Conference will shrink by two additional teams beginning with the 2018-19 academic year with recent decisions by New England College and Green Mountain College to leave the league.

Those moves follow earlier decisions by Castleton University and Colby-Sawyer University to leave the NCAA Division III conference on a similar timeline.

The combined departures will leave the NAC with just six full-time members — Husson University of Bangor, Maine Maritime Academy of Castine, Thomas College of Waterville, the University of Maine at Farmington and Vermont schools Lyndon State College and Johnson State College.
