HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – The South Eastern Conference is delighted to hear that the NCAA Division 1 program at the University of Alabama-Huntsville has been given new life and will maintain its status. The last D1 program in the south was set to fold after this season due to financial instability and logistic issues.
The Save UAH Hockey group helped raise $500,000 to keep the program going and the new school president approved the teams existence despite being cancelled by the interim president earlier in the year.
“The SECHC is thrilled with the news that the efforts to save the only NCAA D1 hockey program in the south have been successful. Congratulations to the UAH hockey family, Coach Luongo and hockey fans everywhere. We are very happy for all of you!”said Kenny “Sarge” Day, Commissioner, SEC Hockey Conference.
