SAN ANTONIO — St. Mary’s University Athletics is poised to begin an exciting new chapter in its storied history.
The Rattlers will join the Lone Star Conference beginning in the 2019-2020 school year, St. Mary’s University President Thomas Mengler announced Wednesday.
St. Mary’s will be joined by seven other Heartland Conference schools in moving to the LSC, which has its own storied history in the Southwest – dating back nearly 90 years. It will become the largest conference in NCAA Division II.
“In the Lone Star Conference, our student-athletes will face new challenges and seek greater achievements on the courts and fields, all while maintaining the level of academic excellence, sportsmanship and citizenship we’ve always strove to achieve, Mengler said. “Our final two years in the Heartland Conference will be bittersweet. We’re proud to have been an original Heartland member, and we’ll always look back on our 51 conference titles with great pride. Still, we look forward to new competition, decreased travel and larger crowds.”
