The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics announced a one-year extension with the Columbus Sports Council to host the 2018 NAIA Men’s and Women’s Swimming and Diving National Championships.
The 2018 edition of the event, which will be held from Feb. 28 to March 3 at the Columbus Aquatic Center, will mark its third consecutive year in Columbus.
“The NAIA is excited to continue its partnership with the Columbus Sports Council,” NAIA president and CEO Jim Carr said. “Columbus has already displayed a first-class atmosphere for our student-athletes, and we are confident they will do so in 2018.”
The Columbus Sports Council has hosted several other NAIA events over the years, including the 2013 and 2014 NAIA Softball World Series and the opening round of the 2010 NAIA Baseball National Championship.
“Every individual on the local organizing committee and in the greater Columbus community need to be recognized for their commitment in offering our student-athletes, coaches and fans a great championship experience,” Carr said.
