About the conference change ...
"This is a significant day for the future of Lincoln University," said President John B. Moseley, Ed.D. "This puts us in a position athletically where we've leveled the playing field by realigning ourselves with others of similar size and similar fiscal commitment. This will also give us the opportunity to compete and recruit in areas where Lincoln already has a large alumni base.
About the new sports ...
"For me personally, bringing baseball back is special. It's a sport that's had a lot of history here at Lincoln, so I'm excited about its return. Soccer is a growing sport and will give us a chance to have an international presence. Adding these sports, in addition to joining the GLVC, will give us more opportunities to recruit students, not just student-athletes."
