IPFW athletic department officials held a 3 p.m. news conference yesterday to announce that the school has been officially offered a spot in the Mid-Continent Conference effective for the 2007-2008 school year and athletic season. Mid-Con commissioner Tom Douple made the announcement in the packed ballroom of the Walb Student Union on the school’s Fort Wayne, Indiana campus.
“We had put so much effort into this and we had worked so hard to get it done this time that it was so great to hear those words you’re in,” said Mark Pope, the school’s Athletic Director.
Pope was given the news by Chancellor Michael Wartell in the morning and had to prepare for the news conference later in the day.
