Adding new members will be a priority for the conference.
“I’m dreaming a little when I say this,” Cedarville athletic director Alan Geist said, “but I’d like to see two eight-team divisions.”
“We have to submit our application to the NCAA in December,” Urbana athletic director Doug Young said. “Then we’re hoping for the NCAA to give us our notification of whether we’re accepted by February.
“By that point, we’ll start getting some interest from other schools that are currently in conferences or ones that are looking to transition from the NAIA. There’s nothing formal or all that real right now until the application is accepted.”
