Casper already hosts one college national championship event…and soon it will host another.

The National Junior College Athletic Association has announced that Casper will host the N.J.C.A.A. Division One Volleyball National Championship Tournament for three years, beginning in 2013.

Aaron McCreight of the Casper Area Convention and Visitors Bureau was the one who put the bid together for Casper.

He says the oil city has good history of hosting championship events.

“Last calendar year, Casper hosted over eighty sports tournaments, with over four-teen thousand competitors in town. We know what we’re doing here in Casper. That’s why we consider ourselves the sports capital of Wyoming. This is where tournaments come to play and crown their champions. We’ve been there and done that.”

Another example would be the College National Finals Rodeo, which just signed a ten year extension to stay in Casper.

McCreight also says with the recent volleyball success at such places as Casper College, Western Wyoming College, and even Western Nebraska…the eastern rocky mountain region is starting to become a volleyball hot-bed.

“While we may not be central to the country, we set up pretty well for volleyball powerhouses. If you look at the top twenty finishers last year in the country, over half of them were either in Wyoming or bordered Wyoming, or at least in the mountain time zone. I mean, this is volleyball country.”

Spokane, Washington and West Plains, Missouri were the other two finalists hoping to host the tournament.

The games will be played in mid-November at the Casper Events Center, beginning in 2013.
