On Thursday, Frostburg State University joined the Mountain East Conference following a unanimous vote of approval by the MEC Board of Directors. If accepted into the NCAA Division II process, Frostburg State would be slated to begin competition in the MEC beginning with the 2019-20 academic year. Full membership in the MEC will ultimately be contingent upon Frostburg State achieving active membership status in NCAA Division II.
