With the calendar having turned the page to July, Liberty Athletics has transitioned its conference affiliation to the ASUN Conference. During today's interview between LFSN reporter Alan York and Jeff Jacobs of the men's track & field team, Jacobs talks about the transition process and his excitement for Liberty's new home for athletics.

On May 17, Liberty announced a new direction for its athletics department, as conference membership for 17 of its programs will move to the ASUN Conference, starting with the 2018-19 athletics season.

Eight of Liberty's nine men's programs will move to the ASUN (baseball, men's basketball, men's cross country, men's golf, men's soccer, men's tennis and men's indoor and outdoor track & field), along with nine of Liberty's 11 women's programs (women's basketball, women's cross country, women's lacrosse, women's soccer, softball, women's tennis, women's indoor and outdoor track & field and volleyball).

The only programs not making the conference move will be Liberty's football program, who will play its first season as an FBS independent in 2018, along with field hockey (BIG EAST Conference) and women's swimming and diving (CCSA).
