— As the 2018 season draws to a close UC Davis field hockey is set to continue its affiliation with the America East Conference for the 2019 season as announced by the league on Wednesday.
An agreement between the conference and California, UC Davis, Pacific and Stanford, all current associate members in field hockey, was approved that extends all four associate memberships for the 2019 season.
Transitioning to America East from the NorPac Field Hockey Conference back in 2015, next season will mark the fifth year of America East membership for the Aggies.
In the West Division, UC Davis is joined by Pacific, Stanford, and California, while Albany, UMass Lowell, Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont make up the East Division.
Founded in 1979, the America East Conference consists of nine member institutions: University at Albany, Binghamton University, University of Hartford, University of Maine, UMBC, UMass Lowell, University of New Hampshire, Stony Brook University, and University of Vermont. The conference sponsors championships across 18 different sports, including field hockey, and provides its member schools and their athletic programs a platform upon which student-athletes can achieve both collegiate and life success through the promotion and nurturing of athletic excellence, academic achievement and leadership, on and off the field.
