LCU applies to join NCAA Division 2 Athletics

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock Christian University has long been a power in NAIA but KCBD NewsChannel 11 Sports has learned the school has filed a 348 page application document to join NCAA Division 2 Athletics.

The school also submitted a video to showcase their top notch facilities from the Rip Griffin Center to Hays Field to Plains Capital Park.

LCU is being endorsed by the Heartland Conference in NCAA Division 2.

Last year, Sooner Athletic Conference members Southern Nazarene, NW Okla State and Oklahoma Christian all applied to join NCAA Division 2 and only Southern Nazarene was accepted.

Oklahoma Christian will resubmit an application and Rogers State is expected to put in an application this time as well. Both are also endorsed by the HeartlandConference.

LCU will find out in July if they've gained acceptance into NCAA Division 2. If they do there will be a 2-year transition period from NAIA to playing in limbo then getting into NCAA Division 2.
