JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - The University of Jamestown in North Dakota has applied to become part of the Great Plains Athletic Conference in 2017.

Jamestown has been competing in the North Star Athletic Association since its inception in 2013. Before that the Jimmies were part of the now-defunct Dakota Athletic Conference.

Existing schools in the GPAC are in Iowa, South Dakota and Nebraska. Jamestown President Bob Badal says it would be a "solid fit" for Jamestown because it has other faith-based private schools.

KQDJ radio reports that the GPAC isn't expected to a make decision until sometime in July.
