Union University waiting on NCAA D-II decision

Union University spent several years studying a move to NCAA Division II, and the school compiled the data and crunched the numbers to file an application by the June 1 deadline.

But as Union awaits a decision from the NCAA Division II Membership Committee, athletics director Tommy Sadler said the department's activities haven't deviated from a normal summer routine.

"We've had lots of camps here with eight of our teams doing some type of camp," Sadler said. "Coaches are recruiting the same way they have in the past.

"We're still playing an NAIA schedule next year and competing for NAIA championships."

Sadler said the NCAA hasn't told him an exact date when the organization would announce the new Division II members, but a decision is expected this month.

"We're optimistic, and hopefully we have a good application," Sadler said. "This isn't an application just from athletics, but the entire university.

"This really deals with the fitness of the university."
