About the Northeast-10 Conference

The Northeast-10 Conference is an NCAA Division II conference that was established in 1979. The conference consists of 16 member institutions located throughout the Northeast in the states of Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, and Vermont. The institutions that make up the Northeast-10 include Adelphi University (Garden City, N.Y.), American International College (Springfield, Mass.), Assumption College (Worcester, Mass.), Bentley University (Waltham, Mass.), Franklin Pierce University (Rindge, N.H.), Le Moyne College (Syracuse, N.Y.), University of Massachusetts Lowell (Lowell, Mass.), Merrimack College (North Andover, Mass.), University of New Haven (West Haven, Conn.), Pace University (Pleasantville, N.Y.), Saint Anselm College (Manchester, N.H.), Saint Michael’s College (Colchester, Vt.), The College of Saint Rose (Albany, N.Y.), Southern Connecticut State University (New Haven, Conn.), Southern New Hampshire University (Manchester, N.H.), and Stonehill College (Easton, Mass.).

Saint Rose claimed the 2011 NCAA Women’s Soccer National Championship by defeating Grand Valley State.

The 16 member institutions are spread geographically from Syracuse, N.Y. to Waltham, Mass. and Colchester, Vt. to Garden City, N.Y. Many of the members are located in or around the metropolitan areas of Albany, Boston, Manchester, New Haven, Worcester, and New York City. The conference was proud to welcome the New Haven and Adelphi in its latest expansion, adding to the powerful union of strong academic and athletic institutions.

The Northeast-10 has evolved into a membership committed to competitive athletics programs that emphasize the education, both on and off the field, of more than 6,000 student athletes. Among the many accomplishments of these institutions are NCAA Division II national championships in women’s basketball, women’s cross country, field hockey, men’s lacrosse, women’s lacrosse, men’s soccer, women’s soccer, women’s track and field, and men’s and women’s swimming and diving. The conference is coming off a successful 2011-12 season, as the Saint Rose women’s soccer team claimed the first national championship in the school’s athletic history with a 2-1 victory over Grand Valley State in Pensacola, Fla. The UMass Lowell field hockey team also advanced to the national title game for the sixth time in seven seasons, while the Bentley women’s basketball and Stonehill men’s basketball teams both advanced to their respective NCAA Final Fours.

American International’s Dominic Smith claimed a national title in the 400 meter dash.

Also during the 2011-12 academic year, Southern Connecticut’s Amanda Thomas won national championships in the 200 and 400 individual medleys, and for her efforts was named the 2012 NCAA Division II Women’s Swimmer of the Year. Southern Connecticut’s Nick Lebron (heptathlon) and American International’s Dominic Smith (400 meter dash) also claimed individual national titles at the 2012 NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships.

In all, 59 different Northeast-10 Conference teams were selected to participate in NCAA Championship play during the 2011-12 academic year. The 59 programs represented 15 of the 16 conference institutions. From the field of play to inside the classroom, the Northeast-10 honored a number of student-athletes for their academic accomplishments. Over 50 percent of all conference student-athletes earned a 3.0 GPA throughout the 2011-12 academic year and were named to the Commissioner’s Honor Roll as a result. Of the nearly 6,000 honor roll selections for the fall and spring, 244 earned a perfect 4.0 GPA. The conference also honored 260 student-athletes that excelled at a high level on the field and in the classroom as members of academic all-conference teams. Today’s Northeast-10 Conference remains focused on complementing the academic integrity and missions of its member institutions with a commitment to a broad-based championship program, as evidenced by the 23 sports the conference offers in championship play, the most such of any Division II conference.

Southern Connecticut’s Amanda Thomas was named the 2012 NCAA Division II Women’s Swimmer of the Year.

Through the establishment and enforcement of regulations, the conference aims to encourage policies that enable intercollegiate athletics programs to contribute to and be considered an integral part of the total educational offerings at our member institutions. The Northeast-10 can look to a long history of success including the growth from seven original member institutions to more than double its size 30 years later, the contention for and winning of multiple national championships, and the recognition of student-athlete performances off the field and in the classroom.
