MEAC, Hampton University Agree To Amicable Separation
// 3/12/2018 11:10:28 AM
NORFOLK, Va. (March 12, 2018) - The Council of
Chief Executive Officers of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC)
and Hampton University have come to an amicable agreement with regards
to Hampton’s resignation from the conference.
Hampton University consents to a fine of an undisclosed amount for
failing to meet the MEAC’s July 1, 2017 deadline for withdrawal from the
MEAC and Hampton University have agreed to terms that are fair to both
parties. This agreement allows for Hampton University and MEAC member
institutions to play as non-conference opponents in the future and
preserves the traditional rivalries held dear by stakeholders of both
Hampton University and the MEAC.
“Hampton University values our relationship with the MEAC and I believe
this agreement is best for all parties going forward,” said Dr. William
R. Harvey, President of Hampton University. “This agreement is not only
what’s best for Hampton University and the MEAC, but it is what’s best
for our collective students, alumni, boosters and fans.”
“We are very pleased with the agreement reached between the MEAC and
Hampton University,” said Dr. Dennis E. Thomas, MEAC Commissioner. “We
wish Hampton University student-athletes, coaches and staff continued
success in their future endeavors.”
On February 17, 2017, the Boosters lost one its founding members with the passing of James "Rudy" Carter. Rudy has been a member of the Boosters Club for 67 years. During the CIAA days Rudy was instrumental in organizing the very successful Car Raffle that a raised a lot of money for the Hampton Athletics Department. In 1994 Hampton joined the MEAC and Hampton was not able to continue it's raffle at the basketball tournament. Rudy was one the Boosters Club biggest supporters. He served as Treasurer for many year before his health began to fail. He was also one of the Boosters Club biggest financial supporters. We will miss Mr. Carter but his contributions to the Boosters Club will live on forever.
