Seems like with WSU leaving and UM-BC dropping tennis last year the league has decided to end mens tennis

ISUr and Drake have officially announced a move to The Summit.
Stony Brook will find a home back east
WSU to the AAC
SIU is the only one not know right now. If they were going Summit I'd think we'd have heard. WIll they try MAC or just drop the sport?

That would've been my assumption as well. When 2 of the 3 conference members (excluding SBU) announce they are leaving a dead conference for a new one and that third one makes no announcement of any kind, not even a "We are going to explore potential options for a new home", that pretty much tells me the program is dead.

SIU had announced they were dropping tennis back in January. Once the WSU talk heated up, I'm assuming that Drake and ISU were already looking at their next league.

Valpo and Murray State both sponsor the sport.

I wonder if the Valley will bring it back to pair Drake, ISUr, Valpo and Murray State in one conference. Maybe keep UMBC around.
