NIAC Expansion Continues with NHSC

The Northern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (NIAC) is pleased to announce the addition of Nueta Hidatsa Sahnish College (New Town, ND) as its 11th active member, beginning with the 2019-20 academic year.

“We are very much looking forward to the addition of NHSC as a NIAC member and feel their inclusion will further strengthen what’s become a very competitive conference,” said Dan Hovestol, NIAC President. “Additionally, we’re aggressively pursuing further expansion as it relates to future NIAC sport and sanctioned tournament options. With 11 colleges, the opportunity to serve our athletes with additional sport offerings becomes more likely in the future.  We’re not only encouraged by the continued addition of NIAC member institutions but also with recent developments of a more intentional relationship with the Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference (MCAC).  Future partnership with the MCAC can potentially expand our athletic opportunities beyond just basketball which I believe is a win-win for all involved.”

The upcoming NIAC postseason basketball tournament will be held February 15-17, 2019 on the Sisseton Wahpeton College campus. Existing members of the NIAC are: Association Free Lutheran Bible School (Plymouth, Minnesota), Canadian Mennonite University (Winnipeg, Manitoba), Cankdeska Cikana Community College (Fort Totten, North Dakota), Leech Lake Tribal College (Cass Lake, Minnesota), Oak Hills Christian College (Bemidji, Minnesota), Providence University College (Otterburne, Manitoba), Red River College (Winnipeg, Manitoba), Sisseton Wahpeton College (Agency Village, SD), Trinity Bible College (Ellendale, North Dakota) and Turtle Mountain Community College (Belcourt, North Dakota).
