UW to host prep competition through 2020

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The University of Wisconsin and the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association have agreed to a seven-year contract extension to host state high school athletic tournaments on the Madison campus.

The WIAA will hold tournaments for high school boys' basketball, football, golf, wrestling, and softball at UW facilities in Madison through the spring of 2020.

The association says that with the exception of 1936, the boys' basketball tournament has been held in Madison since 1920, and the wrestling championships have been held there since 1949.

The WIAA?state tournaments in 2011-2012 drew a paid attendance of about 237,000 people, as well as thousands of additional participants, coaches and school administrators.

State swimming, diving, and tennis tournaments will continue to be held on the UW campus, but are not part of the new agreement.
