Businesses hope for boost from NKU's move to DI

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. (AP) -

Businesses are hoping for an economic boost as the Northern Kentucky University's sports teams make the jump to Division I competition and the Atlantic Sun Conference this year.

A Friday exhibition men's soccer game against the University of Kentucky drew 1,206 fans, the first-ever sellout at NKU's two-year-old soccer stadium.

University spokesman Chris Cole says that the school will likely see larger crowds at athletic events, but it was too early to predict how the move to a higher level of competition would impact the school and surrounding area.

Skyline Tavern manager Tom Kleinschmidt says moving to Division I will only bring more attention to basketball and other sports, which he hopes will generate business from people attending games.
