Alabama-Huntsville now looking at keeping D-I program

After a meeting Tuesday night with a grass roots effort group to save the hockey program at Alabama-Huntsville, the school released a statement seemingly changing its stance on the decision to end the D-I program it announced earlier this season.

UAH spokesman Ray Garner told the Huntsville Times that the school is committing to nothing beyond the statement below.

Members of The University of Alabama in Huntsville administration met this evening with hockey supporters, following discussions with Chancellor Malcolm Portera, and came to a consensus to work closely together to pursue institutional and community support to continue UAH hockey at the Division I level.

Several scenarios were discussed to ensure recurring support is in place, and the two groups will continue to meet in the coming days to finalize a workable plan.
