Sacramento will play host to several NCAA postseason events over the next few years, the NCAA announced Wednesday.
The city will host a womens basketball regional at Sleep Train Arena in 2015, a mens and womens cross-country regional at the Haggin Oaks Golf Complex in 2016 and an outdoor track and field regional at Sacramento States Hornet Stadium in 2018, according to a list of championship sites for the 2014-18 seasons released by the NCAA. Sac State and the Sacramento Sports Commission are listed as co-hosts for the events.
Sleep Train Arena, which last served as a regional site for the NCAA womens basketball tournament in 2010, will host the 2015 regional from March 28-31. The 2016 cross-country regional will take place Nov. 11 at Haggin Oaks, which hosted the NCAA West Regional in November.
The 2018 track and field regional will take place between May 24-26. Sac State previously hosted the NCAA Division I Outdoor Championships in 2003 and from 2005-07, and it was recently announced that Hornet Stadium will be the site of the USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in 2014.
The NCAA also announced the Division I and II rowing championships in 2015 and 2016 will be held at the Sacramento State Aquatic Center in Gold River, co-hosted by the Pacific-12 Conference.
