A brand new all-sports collegiate athletic conference is being formed that includes the University of Charleston and West Virginia State University.
The Mountain East Conference will be composed of 12 teams – Concord University; Fairmont State University; Glenville State College; Notre Dame College (Ohio); Shepherd University; the University of Charleston; the University of Virginia’s College at Wise (Va.); Urbana University (Ohio); West Liberty University; West Virginia State University; Wheeling Jesuit University; and West Virginia Wesleyan College, according to a news release from the new conference.
The Mountain East Conference will begin competition for the 2013-2014 academic year and will remain active with current conference affiliations until the participants would be able to compete as a conference within the NCAA, the release said. The move will not affect any athletic schedules for 2012-2013.
