Beginning with the 2010 season, the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) has partnered with the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) in the sports of baseball, women’s lacrosse, and men’s and women’s tennis. The NEAC will compete as associate members of the NAC in women’s lacrosse and men’s tennis, while the NAC will compete as associate members of the NEAC in baseball and women’s tennis. Members from each conference will be divided into an East and West Division for each sport, with each division holding a championship and the two divisional champions then facing off to determine the conference champion. The conference winner for each sport will earn an automatic bid to the NCAA Division III Championships. For baseball and women’s lacrosse, this partnership will end following the 2012 season.
