CSUN to Study Plan for New Conference

Bob Hiegert, Cal State Northridge athletic director, will be among a group of athletic administrators meeting today at United States International University in San Diego to discuss the formation of a new Division I athletic conference beginning in the 1991-92 school year.

Northridge is interested in the proposed alliance, Hiegert said, as a short-term solution to scheduling problems in men’s and women’s basketball.

“We’re coming just to find out what’s happening,” Hiegert said Wednesday.

Northridge is set to begin competing at the Division I level this fall in all sports but football. With few exceptions, CSUN’s teams will be playing as independents.
