I received this email today:
Dear Butler Community,
We are pleased to announce that Butler University will join the Atlantic 10 Conference (A-10) in fall 2012, a year ahead of schedule.
Fall competition will include men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball and men’s and women’s cross country; winter competition will include men’s and women’s basketball, women’s swimming, and men’s and women’s indoor track and field; and spring competition will include baseball, softball, men’s and women’s tennis, men’s golf, and men’s and women’s outdoor track and field. Women’s golf will also compete in the spring but not in the A-10 since it does not host women’s golf. Schedules for these teams will begin being posted online at www.butlersports.com this summer.
Butler had planned to leave the Horizon League after 2012-2013 to join the A-10, but an accelerated timetable was made possible by both leagues.
The A-10 will compete as a 16-team league in 2012-2013. In addition to Butler, the league includes first-year member VCU, Charlotte, Dayton, Duquesne, Fordham, George Washington, La Salle, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Richmond, St. Bonaventure, Saint Joseph’s, Saint Louis, Temple and Xavier.
Vice President and Director of Athletics
