NJIT switches conferences to American East from Atlantic Sun

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) New Jersey Institute of Technology is switching conferences, joining America East and leaving the Atlantic Sun.

America East announced its board of presidents had unanimously voted to to give NJIT full conference membership, effective 2020-21.

NJIT will become America East's 10th member and move into a league that is a more natural geographic fit, with school such as Hartford, Maine, Binghamton and Maryland-Baltimore County. The Newark-based school has been competing in NCAA's Division I since 2006. It sponsors 16 varsity sports.
