Belhaven Applies for NCAA Division III Membership

Posted: Updated:
WJTV - Multiple sources confirm to News Channel 12 that Belhaven University has applied for NCAA Division III membership.
Currently, Belhaven is a part of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).

During this process, Belhaven will go through an exploratory year and the NCAA will also spend that time evaluating Belhaven. If Belhaven believes this is the best move for the school and the NCAA accepts the application, the plan is for the Blazers to take the place of Mississippi College in the American Southwest Conference. 

Mississippi College is leaving Div. III for Division II athletics. MC's begins its first year candidacy period during the 2014-2015 school year.
