The University of Hawai‘i announced today that its sports teams have joined the Big West Conference (BWC) and the Mountain West Conference (MWC) beginning with the 2012-13 season.
The Warrior football team will become the tenth member of the MWC. UH’s other sports programs, with the exception of sailing, men’s and women’s swimming and diving, and men’s volleyball, will join the BWC.
Gib Arnold (Men’s Basketball Head Coach)“We’re looking forward to the new challenges that joining the Big West brings. We’ll be able to build new rivalries with other West Coast schools and it allows our student-athletes from California a greater opportunity to play in front of family and friends.”
