The University of Alabama in Huntsville is discontinuing its men's hockey program due to financial challenges resulting from the COVID-19 crisis, the school announced Friday.

UAH is the first Division I hockey school to cancel its program since the pandemic and the first to do so since Wayne State in 2008, according to USCHO. The university also eliminated its men's and women's tennis programs.

The Chargers won two games this season and have a combined record of 48-181-24 over the last seven years.

UAH's departure leaves Arizona State as the only D-I men's hockey program located in the Sun Belt.
