Stanford is set to host numerous NCAA championships

 

Stanford has been named as the host site for the 2015 NCAA Championship in men's volleyball and women's water polo.

The school also will serve as a host site for the 2014 NCAA West Regional Championships for men's and women's cross country.


Stanford last hosted the NCAA Championship in men's volleyball during the 2010 campaign, when the Cardinal completed a memorable "worst-to-first" title run that ended with a sweep of Penn State at Maples Pavilion.

The NCAA Championship in women's water polo was most recently held at the Avery Aquatic Center in 2008, when the Cardinal claimed a third-place finish.

The 2014 NCAA West Regional Championships for men's and women's cross country will be held at the Stanford Golf Course. Stanford last hosted in 2011. The two-time defending champion men have won two of the regional home meets, as have the Cardinal women.

"When you look at the list of cities and venues that will host our championships, there is no doubt the experiences across divisions and sports will likely be the best in NCAA history," said Mark Lewis, NCAA executive vice president of championships and alliances. "The process was extremely thorough and allowed the sport committees to have some tremendous options, which will ultimately provide our student-athletes, coaches and fans the best experience possible."

The new NCAA championship bid process creates the largest host site announcement ever, spanning 82 championships across a four-year cycle. Previously, selection announcements varied by sport. This process now gives the NCAA and host sites more time to plan each championship experience.
