For the first time since 2005, Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) fans will be able to witness the crowning of two Conference champions the same weekend in the same city.
The 2013 CIAA Volleyball Championship will move to Winston-Salem State University in Winston-Salem, N.C., and take place November 15 – 17 on the university’s campus.
In addition, the CIAA Football Championship game will crown its champion on Saturday, November 16 at Winston-Salem State University’s Bowman Gray Stadium.
First round volleyball action begins on Friday, November 15 as the top four teams from the Northern and Southern Division meet in a double-elimination tournament. Fayetteville State University is the 2012 defending champion.
“Winston-Salem State University will be a fantastic host for both the CIAA volleyball and football championships. 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,” said Jacqie Carpenter, commissioner, CIAA.
