D III Women's Volleyball

A source for NCAA Division III women's volleyball info and opinion, with a focus on the Midwest and Central regions

Championship hosts to be revealed tomorrow

The NCAA developed a new way to procure bids for dozens of championships at all three levels. Hosting bids are now sent to a central portal, and the NCAA vetted the 1,984 total bids and will mete out the winning bids en masse.

The process started in July with bids from hopeful institutions and cities. Finalists for most of the NCAA’s 89 championships were announced in late October. Tomorrow the NCAA will announce the host sites for 82 championships, including Division III women’s volleyball.

The video announcement is scheduled to begin at noon central. The announcement will also include all pre-determined regional host sites, and cities were able to bid for one or more years of the same championship, according to an NCAA release in October.

As a reminder, here are the four finalists for the D-III women’s volleyball championship:
• Birmingham CrossPlex Hosts: Birmingham Southern/City of Birmingham/Birmingham CrossPlex.
• Van Noord Arena Hosts: Calvin/West Michigan Sports Commission.
• Freeman Center Host: Christopher Newport.
• Kolf Sports Center Host: Wisconsin Oshkosh.

I’m sure many of you have a preference. I do too. I’m typing this post one mile from one of the venues on the list of finalists. Pretty please with sugar on top, NCAA.
