The Boise State gymnastics team received some welcome news Thursday.
The NCAA announced the Mountain Rim Gymnastics Conference will be granted Division 1 membership, effective immediately.
The league is comprised of Boise State, BYU, Denver, Southern Utah, and Utah State.
NCAA recognition provides a few perks. The MRGC Championship meet will now count as postseason competition, and the status allows member schools to begin official practices earlier in the year.
