Elon is joining the Colonial Athletic Association for the 2014-15 season. "A big day for Elon," school president Leo M. Lambert said is making the announcement Thursday in Elon, N.C. He called the CAA a "venerable athletic conference" and said the league is "an ideal fit for Elon," particularly since 56 percent of Elon's enrollment hails from within the CAA footprint. The Phoenix will join as an all-sports member, giving the CAA 10 basketball schools and 12 in football once Elon becomes eligible. Elon is the second school to leave the Southern Conference for the CAA. College of Charleston is joining as an all-sports member next season.
