The University of Wisconsin-Superior announced on Wednesday it's application to join the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference has been acted upon and accepted by the presidents of the conference.
The UMAC Council of Presidents voted unanimously on Monday to approve UWS for full membership. Yellowjacket teams will begin competing in the UMAC during the 2015-16 season. UWS will begin its final season of competition on the WIAC this fall, ending a 102-year affiliation with the conference.
The UWS hockey teams will continue to compete in the WIAC because the UMAC does not sponsor men's or women's hockey.
