BRONXVILLE, N.Y. – Sarah Lawrence College and its varsity athletic programs will be joining the Skyline Conference for the 2014-2015 academic year.

Sarah Lawrence College President Karen Lawrence and Skyline Conference Commissioner Linda Bruno announced that the Gryphons will be joining the 10-team conference.

“We are proud to have this opportunity to compete in the Skyline Conference,” Lawrence said. “Our association with its member schools will allow our student-athletes to compete at high athletic levels while developing the leadership, teamwork and discipline skills that are vital to academic success.”

Bruno continued by praising those credited with bringing Sarah Lawrence College into the fold.

“Sarah Lawrence College will further enhance our league’s commitment to academic and athletic excellence,” she said. “I commend the Presidents’ Council on an outstanding addition to the Skyline, and I look forward to their arrival.”

The Skyline Conference, formed in 1989, conducts championships in 17 sports – nine for men and eight for women, of which Sarah Lawrence competes in a dozen. The conference has had a student-athlete earn Academic All-America distinctions in each of the past three semesters.

Champions in the Skyline are granted automatic qualification to the NCAA Division III National Championships. Sarah Lawrence’s conference application was unanimously approved by the Skyline Conference Presidents’ Council in March.

This year, the school will complete its final seasons as a member of the Hudson Valley Athletic Conference. The college’s equestrian team will remain a member of the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association, while all crew teams will retain membership in USRowing.

S. Elizabeth A. Hill, the chair of the conference Presidents’ Council said that the latest addition will boost the conference academically and athletically.

“The Skyline Conference is very pleased to welcome Sarah Lawrence College as a new member,” she said. “Their presence will strengthen the conference both academically and athletically, and we are looking forward to a long and mutually enriching relationship.”
