There are growing signs that the Mustangs might join the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference for the 2015-16 school year, pending a possible vote of league presidents at their executive meeting in early October.
Mount Mercy is currently a member of the Midwest Collegiate Conference, but that league will be disbanding after the 2014-15 school year due to a lack of members with Grand View and William Penn departing for another league.
Jeff Schimmelpfening, the commissioner of the Chicagoland Conference, told the Metro Sports Report Saturday that league officials have been talking to Mount Mercy officials since the spring about adding the Mustangs to the league.
"We have met with them," he confirmed. "At this point we're moving forward."
