DENVER, CO - The Western Athletic Conference announced today that an invitation for affiliate membership has been issued to and accepted by Northern Colorado to join the conference in baseball starting with the 2013-14 academic year.
“We are pleased to announce the addition of Northern Colorado to the WAC baseball family,” said WAC Interim Commissioner Jeff Hurd. “UNC will be a great fit with the other baseball teams in the league. We expect that they will match up well both competitively and geographically.”
Northern Colorado baseball can be traced back to 1895 when the university was named State Normal School. The Bears were part of the Rocky Mountain Conference (which became the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference in 1969) until 1972 when the team joined the Great Plains Athletic Conference (1973-76). In 1991, the team officially became part of the Division II North Central Conference until 2003, when the team began its reclassification back to Division I. The Bears have made 10 Division I College World Series appearances. UNC has made 20 Division I regional appearances.
