UPENN, last season's undefeated champion of D2, moves to D1 this season. The Quakers helped found the conference back in 2002 & are back to make their mark.
Loyola University Maryland joins D1 for the team's historic 1st season. Years in the making, the Greyhound roster is eager to prove something in the DVCHC. Full Story.
D1 grows to 10 teams in season 13! To accommodate the size, the league divided the division into a "North" and "South." (To be renamed this month.)
Teams will play nearby rivals 2x and cross divisions to take on potential playoff opponents.
For teams low on numbers and big on beginners, D2 is home. 6 universities fill the division & with the reigning champs off to D1, whomever wins the title this season will do so for the 1st time.
For the first time in league history, MARYLAND'S teams will have a chance to battle for the bay. Towson, U. Maryland, Loyola, the US Naval Academy, all neighbors in the great "Old Line State" are at odds for the first Maryland State Title. Each team plays the other for a total of 4 points this regular season, best record takes the whole pot of crabs. Watch for more on this as we invite the state's famous locations & notables to take part in the contest!
