Canada West University Athletics Association continues to grow as it approved one new full member and a new probationary member at its three-day annual general meeting concluded on Thursday.
The CIS conference’s members, which includes the Brandon University Bobcats, voted the UBC Okanagan Heat to become the 14th full member. They also voted Edmonton’s MacEwan University to become the conference’s 17th member, although it’s a probationary status. UBCO competes in men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball. It’s adding soccer in 2014-15.
The MacEwan Griffins will begin league play in September 2014 in men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball, soccer and cross-country running.
