New Orleans, LA -

Hurricane Katrina left pure devastation in her wake and the impact was feLt in schools like the University of New Orleans.  UNO never fully recovered as far as athletics are concerned, so today the Privateers turned over a new leaf.  UNO is currently an independent school that competed in the Sun BeLt Conference until 2010 but that is going to change.  UNO is joining the Southland Conference, effective July 1, 2013.

The men's side will include basketball, baseball, cross country, golf, tennis, as well as indoor and outdoor track and field.

For the women; basketball, cross country, golf, tennis, indoor and outdoor track as well as volleyball.

With joining the SLC, UNO will partake in 14 of the Southland's 17 sponsored championships.
