Huskies to move Division II programs
Thursday, March 29, 2007
During the 2006-07 season, SCSU committed to NCAA Division II and asked to join the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) in 2008 for its Division II programs.
The university’s association with the North Central Conference (NCC) will end following the 2007-08 season, when the conference disbands.
SCSU has enjoyed a competitive non-conference relationship with the NSIC, an emerging force in NCAA Division II. The Huskies have been NCC members in men’s and women’s athletics since the 1980s, winning since that time 28 conference championships in men’s sports and nine in women’s sports.
The SCSU men’s athletics department was a charter member of the Northern Intercollegiate Conference (NIC) in 1932.
The NCC is disbanding since four of its members – North Dakota State, South Dakota State, North Dakota and South Dakota – opted to go Division I.
