In 2024. Co-hosting with AIC.

The notice I saw said that if we make it to the regional we would be placed in Springfield. Let's go boys and get a "home" game. Of course, it's 4 years away but something to shoot for.

How does cohosting work? If both teams qualify are they both placed there? Neither? The one higher in the pairwise? I know when conferences host no one is automatically placed there, not even the conference championship.

Looking forward to hockey starting up. Program is solid under Carvel and team plays solid and disciplined for the most part. Talent just gets better and deeper as well

If both teams make it they would both be placed there I believe, so long as they aren't in the same seeding band. Since AIC would only ever be a #4 that potential issue is minimal.

I think that's how they play it with hockey.

^^^ co-hosting is done when brothers are playing for each team.
He struck out so many times last year that putting him on the roster this year is rather baseless.
