WIAA: Girls Tournaments Staying at Resch Center Through 2020

ASHWAUBENON (WAOW) -

According to WBAY the WIAA Girls State Basketball and Volleyball Tournaments will be held at the Resch Center in Ashwaubenon through 2020.

The WIAA Board of Control approved an extension of an agreement with the Resch Center and made the announcement at a news conference Monday morning.

The basketball tournament moved to the Resch Center last spring because of a scheduling conflict at its usual location, the Kohl Center in Madison.

Attendance was nearly 40,000 for the basketball tournament, the highest since 2008.  It brought an estimated $3 million to the Green Bay area.

WIAA officials say the positive reaction from fans, support from the Green Bay community and a good relationship with Resch Center staff were a big part of their move to keep the tournaments in the Green Bay area, according to WBAY.

The 2013 Girls Volleyball Tournament will be held Nov. 7-9. 

The 2014 Girls Basketball Tournament will be held March 20-22.
