MAAC to Host 2018-2019 Swimming & Diving Championship at Erie CC

As part of the chorus of mid-major conferences looking outside of its member institutions to find grander facilities to host their conference championship meet, the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) will host their 2018-2019 men’s and women’s conference swimming & diving championship meets at Erie Community College in BUffalo, New York. This will be the 9th-straight season that LECC has hosted the event, making every season since the 2009-2010 year, where Loyola College hosted the event in Baltimore. Loyola College is no longer a member of the conference.

The Rider men are riding a streak of 7-consecutive conference title – with the streak beginning when the 2011 champions Loyola left to join the Patriot League.

The Fairfield women won their title in 2018, which broke an 8-year streak by Marist. Fairfield won the meet on the strength of a very young team, with 72% of their poinits being scored by freshmen.

Erie Community College has an 8-lane, 50-meter indoor pool and a separate 45-foot by 25-yard diving/warmup pool.
