Atlantic%20Sun%20Conference Conference RealignmentThe Southern Conference and the Atlantic Sun have partnered in a deal that will shift men’s lacrosse sponsorship from the A-Sun to the SoCon in 2015.

A-Sun men’s lacrosse debuts this season with six participants (Furman, High Point, Jacksonville, Mercer, Richmond, VMI) competing for an automatic bid. Bellarmine University, an NCAA Division II school in Louisville, Ky., that has competed at the Division I level in men’s lacrosse since the program’s inaugural season of 2005, will join the group in the SoCon for the 2014-15 season.

“This arrangement will ensure that new lacrosse programs, men and women, will have a conference home that includes an automatic bid to the NCAAs and a regional conference schedule that makes sense,” Southern Conference Commissioner John Iamarino said. “We are grateful for the spirit of cooperation from the A-Sun and all its men’s lacrosse programs. Our objective is to build upon the foundation they’ve established to grow the sport on these campuses.”

    yes i like it so much there should be more of this that goes on .And it would make sense if it helped the conferences as well in each sport to merge with one another since there is way to much of it as it is.That’s one thought.The other is to go geographiclly fit and continue to build more members into your own conference of the sport
