Badgers To Host NCAA Cross Country Championships

Omaha will host NCAA men's basketball tournament, volleyball national championship in 2020

Salem is also losing the Division III men's basketball final four.

The NCAA has awarded hosting duties for both the 2019 and 2020 NCAA Division II men's and women's swimming and diving championships to Greensboro, North Carolina.

The NCAA has chosen the city as the host site for national championships or tournaments in three Division I sports through the 2021-22 school year.

Previously announced, Minneapolis (2019) and Indianapolis (2021) are home to future men's Final Fours.

The NCAA received more than 3,000 bid submissions, and 84 of the organization's 90 championships across all divisions were up for grabs.

In men's golf, LSU will host a regional May 17-20, 2020 at U-Club.

The other two events awarded to FSU and the City of Tallahassee were a 2021 NCAA Division I Men's Golf Regional and a 2022 NCAA Division I Women's Golf Regional. It has staged the last five NCAA Great Lakes regionals in addition to the 2010 Big Ten championship. "Getting these championships to Tallahassee has been a personal goal since we first laid it out over six years ago". US Bank Stadium will also be the first non-arena venue to host the national wrestling tournament. The Huskers have reached the NCAA semifinals every time they have been played in Omaha, including national championships in 2006 and 2015.

There were 43 states selected to host at least one round of an NCAA championship-with Pennsylvania leading the way with 53, Florida second with 51 and IN next at 41. Division I baseball, Division I softball, Division I men's and women's outdoor track and field, which is tallied as two separate championships, and the Football Championship Subdivision game were omitted due to existing contracts.

The NCAA Men's Frozen Four will be headed to Buffalo, Detroit, Pittsburgh, and Boston in 2019-2022.

The Kansas City Sports Commission estimates these 6 events will pump more than $27 million into the local economy.

"I can not wait for our NCAA Division III friends to see the true southern hospitality here in Lexington and Nicholasville", added Lane.

The 2019 NCAA Cross Country Championship will be in Terre Haute, Indiana, while the 2020 NCAA Cross Country Championship will be in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

The event will mark the second time the Cowgirl program has hosted NCAA competition after the 2014 Central Regional was contested at Karsten Creek.
