Patriots Official Members Of NCAA

In April, the UT Tyler Patriots baseball team had the best record in the country, going 37-1.

Despite that stellar record and winning the conference they could not go to the national tournament.

Two years ago the women's basketball team won the division.

Still no national tournament trip.

The soccer team won the conference. Again, no trip to nationals.

That was all because the Patriots were under a four year provisional status period with the NCAA.

Thursday, they became full fledged members.

"I think the fact that all of our programs have experienced a tremendous amount of success is just an indication of how successful they will be in the future," Howard Patterson, Vice President of Student Affairs said. "I do not expect things to fall a part just because we are active members. If anything I think we have more to play for now."

The Patriots soccer game on August 31st will be their first as an NCAA member. The Patriots can now receive national rankings with their membership.
