America East Conference
The America East Conference was established in 1979 as the ECAC North. The conference at that time consisted of 10 institutions and sponsored league competition only in men’s basketball. Men’s basketball remained the lone league sport until the 1988-89 academic year, when the North Atlantic Conference name was adopted. The conference changed its name to America East prior to the 1996-97 academic year. The conference did not begin supporting baseball until the 1991 season.
