UNO Mavericks

UNO Mavericks

The UNO Mavericks are the sports teams of the University of Nebraska at Omaha. They participate in the NCAA's Division II and in the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletic Association, except in ice hockey. The hockey program competes in Division I as a member of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association. The men's ice hockey program reached the NCAA post-season tournament in the 2005-2006 season. The women's soccer and softball teams have won the NCAA's Division II's national championships, as have the wrestling team, who were three-time national champions from 2004-2006.

Formerly a member of the North Central Conference, UNO joined the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletic Association on July 1, 2008. Twelve of UNO's 15 teams compete in the conference. The ice hockey team will remain a member of the CCHA. The wrestling and women's swimming and diving teams haven't had plans announced for their conference affiliations, as the MIAA does not sponsor championships for those sports. Men's tennis will be added in 2009.
