The College of Charleston remains committed to their new conference, the Colonial Athletic Association, despite the fact that the CAA lost one of their teams this afternoon when George Mason announced they were joining the Atlantic 10 this summer.
Despite the fact that they themselves have been rumored to be a candidate to move to the A-10 along with Davidson, CofC released a statement Monday afternoon saying "We learned recently that George Mason University, a member of the Colonial Athletic Association, will leave the conference at the end of the current academic year.
At a time of instability and uncertainty in athletic conference affiliation, announcements of this sort are not surprising.
The College of Charleston remains strongly committed to the Colonial Athletic Association. The strength and quality of the Colonial member institutions, both academically and athletically, continue to be an excellent match for the College of Charleston.
We look forward to a long, happy, and exciting association with the Colonial."
