The NCAA announced Tuesday that Wisconsin will host the 2018 NCAA Division I Cross Country National Championships.

Unveiling its site selections Tuesday for almost all of its championships between 2018 and 2022, the NCAA awarded several events to the St. Louis region and to the University of IL.

The men and women's teams hosted a regional tournament in 2012 and 2008, respectively.

Three sites of the Georgia athletic program are set to host on the national stage for NCAA championships and regionals within the next three years.

"It's an honor to have been selected to play host to one of four NCAA Regional Championships in 2022", said Amy Bond, head coach of the Seminole women's golf team.

In 2021, we will host the men's Frozen Four at PPG Paints Area. Though the University of Nebraska-Lincoln does not sponsor ice hockey, it submitted a bid to host the event at CenturyLink Center.

Indiana State also hosts the 2017 Great Lakes Regional this coming fall for the fifth time in course history (1998, 1999, 2001, 2003). In 2013, the first time the NCAA made this type of announcement, Kansas City landed 14 championships, including some for which it had not submitted a bid.

The name that appeared more frequently than any other, though, was Pittsburgh, a city few would have thought to be in that position as recently as 10 years ago. Then it will be Detroit (2020), Pittsburgh (2021) and back to Boston in 2022.

In addition, Arkansas will be home to a 2019 NCAA Men's and Women's Cross Country Regional (Nov. 15, 2019), a 2019 NCAAA Men's and Women's Outdoor Track and Field Preliminary (May 23-25, 2019) and a 2022 NCAA Gymnastics Regional (April 2, 2022).

With Marquette as host, Bradley Center was the venue for the first and second rounds of the NCAA Tournament this past season.

"We look forward to working with our membership, the cities and local organizing committees who may host for the first time, as well as the groups who will repeat as host sites". Both will be at PPG Paints Arena. The 2019 event will be held November 22-24 with the 2021 championships set for November 19-21.
