The Lone Star Conference officially completed its recent expansion, growing to 19 members Monday.

The eight schools joined the conference are: Dallas Baptist University, Lubbock Christian University, Oklahoma Christian University, St. Edward’s University, St. Mary’s University, Texas A&M International University, University of Arkansas-Fort Smith, and the University of Texas at Tyler.

All eight schools come from the now-defunct Heartland Conference.

With the 19 schools, the Lone Star Conference has now become the largest conference in NCAA Division II. The conference started up in 1931 with only five members.
