As the holiday season approaches, so does spring.
However, the impending arrival of the Division 1 men’s lacrosse season will bring with it substantial changes to several conferences.

The ASUN and the Atlantic 10 now sponsor men’s lacrosse. As a result, the Northeast Conference (NEC) and the Southern Conference (SoCon) have ceased to sponsor the sport, as schools have defected to their respective preferred conferences.
