LINCROFT, NJ - The Garden State Athletic Conference (GSAC) now has a running mate in Region XIX as the Eastern Pennsylvania Athletic Conference (EPAC) was formally established during the recently completed Region XIX winter meetings.
Troy Tucker, Director of Athletics at Northampton Community College, was elected President of the EPAC, with Jocelyn Beck (Lehigh Carbon) serving as the Vice-President, Andrew Johnson (Delaware County Community College) Secretary and Kim Mecca (Lackawanna) Treasurer.
"Given the expansion of the Region, we needed to change our scheduling model and tournament seeding process, thus it became apparent that an additional conference would be beneficial in helping to develop master schedules, etc.," remarked Tucker.
The EPAC is currently comprised of 12 member institutions; Luzerne County Community College, Lehigh-Carbon Community College, Northampton Community College, Stevens Institute of Technology, Montgomery County Community College, Bucks County Community College, Harrisburg Area Community College, Harcum College, Lackawanna College, Williamson Trade, Delaware County Community College and Manor College.
