Division I welcomes two

The Division I Leadership Council elected Central Arkansas and Cal State Bakersfield to Division I membership for the 2010-11 academic year. Both institutions reclassified from Division II through the traditional five-year transition process.

In 2007, the Division I Board of Directors placed a moratorium on new Division I members, but that decision did not affect schools already in the reclassification process.

Central Arkansas joined the Southland Conference, the league in which most of the Bears’ sports competed recently. In fact, Central Arkansas’ football team won the league last year but was ineligible for postseason play.

Cal State Bakersfield is interested in joining the Big West Conference. The Roadrunners recently reinstated several sports after budget cuts forced the elimination of men’s and women’s golf, women’s tennis, and wrestling. A fundraising drive raised enough money to save the endangered teams.
