WSSU to host two CIAA championships this fall
For the first time since 2005, Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) fans will be able to witness the crowning of two Conference champions during the same weekend in the same city.
The 2013 CIAA Volleyball Championship will move to Winston-Salem State University and take place from Nov. 15 – 17 on the university’s campus. During the same time, the CIAA Football Championship game will be played on Saturday, Nov. 16 at WSSU’s Bowman Gray Stadium.
First round volleyball action begins on Friday, Nov. 15, as the top four teams from the Northern and Southern Divisions meet in a double-elimination tournament. Fayetteville State University is the defending champion.
“Winston-Salem State University will be a fantastic host for both the CIAA volleyball and football championships,” said CIAA Commissioner Jacqie Carpenter. “Their experience in hosting will assist the conference in ensuring the fans, sponsors and student-athletes have a spectacular weekend. This is a great opportunity to support and showcase volleyball and football in the community, while celebrating the athletic and academic achievements of some of the best student-athletes in Division II.”
