JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - The University of Jamestown in North Dakota will move to the Great Plains Athletic Conference in the fall of 2018.

School and conference officials made the decision official on Thursday. Jamestown had applied to the conference last spring.

The private school 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.

The GPAC is affiliated with the NAIA and currently consists of 11 private, faith-based colleges and universities in Nebraska, Iowa and South Dakota.
