Bluefield State College petitions to become a part of the CIAA

BLUEFIELD, WV (WVNS)– Bluefield State College is eagerly waiting to become a part of a nationally known athletic conference.

The college petitioned to become a member of the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association, or the CIAA just before the holidays. The Division II athletic conference consists mostly of historical black colleges and universities (HBCU).

Alrighty.

I'm loving this news. I hope the CIAA can help this school grow. Hopefully this is a school WSSU can beat. I just hope Bowie takes it easy on them for a few years.
