The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference began the week with a multi-year partnership with streaming platform FloSports. The deal includes live and on-demand coverage of almost 50 events throughout the spring.

These games include men’s and women’s basketball regular-season and playoff games, Indoor Track and Field Conference Championships and the Championships rounds of the Baseball and Softball Conference Tournaments.

This past weekend Maryland Eastern Shore went 2-1 in the KU Invitational at the Limerick Bowl in Pennsylvania. Despite a tough opening loss against Fairleigh Dickerson, the Hawks were still able to bounce back and sweep MEAC rival North Carolina A&T 4-0. They finished third in the tournament with an average score of 199.75.

Big performances came across the board for MEAC Track and Field participants. Bethune-Cookman opened their season on a high note. The Wildcats recorded four first-place finishes at the Gamecock Inaugural at the University of South Carolina.

However, it was Cambrea Sturgis of NCAT that stole the show this past weekend after her dazzling 200m debut. NCAT competed this past weekend in the Hokie Invitational at Virginia Tech. In her first 200 m race of her college career, Sturgis made a statement by not only winning the even but breaking the school record with a time of 23.43.

NCAT athletics continued their hot streak onto the hardwood as the Aggies continued their undefeated streak in MEAC play. They join Norfolk state as the only two undefeated teams in conference matchups. Norfolk was able to overcome a second-half deficit to beat South Carolina State 74-69. Norfolk and NCAT sit atop the men’s and women's standings in the conference at No. 1 and No. 2 respectively.

For the Florida A&M Lady Rattlers, their fans finally had something to cheer for. The Rattlers won their first conference game of the season against Delaware State. The Rattlers despite a rough start were able to edge out a 57-52 victory. Dy’Manee Royal was the clear star of the night with a 12 point and 10 rebound double-double in the contest.
