NYSPHSAA GIRLS SWIMMING AND DIVING CHAMPIONSHIPS MOVE TO ITHACA IN 2012 and 2013

Posted February 2nd, 2012 5:41pm

 LATHAM, NY – After approval by its Central Committee, the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) has announced the Girls Swimming and Diving State Championships will officially move to Ithaca College in November of 2012 and 2013.

The State Tournament will be conducted November 16-17 in 2012, then tentatively on November 22-23, 2013 in Ithaca, which lies in Section IV. The tentative 2013 dates are due to a possible scheduling conflict that Ithaca may have that weekend. Competition typically begins at 9 am on day one.

The move, which was unanimously recommended to the Central Committee by the Girls Swimming and Diving State Committee in November 2011, marks the first time the Southern Tier has hosted a swimming state championship since 1979 when Cortland was a member of Section IV. The 2012 event will be the first time Ithaca College has hosted a NYSPHSAA swimming tournament.

Since 1998, the tournament has rotated between Erie Community College in Section VI and Nassau County Aquatic Center in Section VIII, with the exception of the event being held at Webster Aquatic Center in Section V in 2009.
