Junior College women’s tournament leaving Salina


SALINA, Kan. (AP) — The NJCAA Division 1 Women’s Basketball National Championship will move from Salina to Lubbock, Texas, after the 2015 tournament.

Salina has been host of the tournament since the 1997-98 season. But the Salina Area Chamber of Commerce announced Thursday the tournament will move to Lubbock at least for 2016 through 2018.

Mary Ellen Leicht, executive director of the NJCAA, announced the decision in a news release.

Next year’s national championship will be at the Salina Bicentennial Center March 16-21.
