The Cal Poly men’s swimming and diving program will join the Pac-10 Conference heading into this upcoming season, according to UC Santa Barbara’s athletic department website on Monday night.
UCSB will also be joining the Pac-10 in the same capacity, according to the website.
Both schools’ women’s swimming and diving programs recently were admitted into the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation as associate members. The programs had competed in the Big West Conference.
As of late Monday night, neither Cal Poly nor the Pac-10 had issued any news releases on the changes.
For Cal Poly, the men’s swimming and diving program would be the second program at the school to belong to the Pac-10 in an associate capacity, joining wrestling.
