Chicagoland turns down Mount Mercy

Mount Mercy University will have to keep looking for a new conference for the 2015-2016 school year.

The Chicagoland Athletic Conference has turned down Mount Mercy's application to join the league, ending Mount Mercy's best hope for finding a suitable new affiliation.

"We knew this was a possibility," Mount Mercy athletic director Scot Reisinger said Thursday morning. "We obviously are disappointed by it. But we have some backup plans that we're putting into place now."

Mount Mercy currently belongs to the Midwest Collegiate Conference, but that league will be disbanding after this school year due to a lack of members.

St. Ambrose University will be introduced today as the 15th member of the  Chicagoland Conference, according to the Quad City Times. Mount Mercy was hoping to join them, but the Mustangs did not get enough support from current Chicagoland schools.

The win pushed Grand View to 14-10, 2-1.
