Monday, May 13, 2019
HUTCHINSON, Kan. - Since 2017, the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference has hosted their annual Fall Fling Volleyball Tournament and Volleyball Championship at the Hutchinson Sports Arena. Both events will be hosted in 2019, and last week KCAC Commissioner, Scott Crawford, signed contracts for the 2020 and 2021 events.
The Fall Fling will take place in August of each year, with the tournament expanding from two days to three days in 2019. Additionally, 13 teams outside of the KCAC member colleges will arrive in Hutchinson for the tournament, increasing the field to 26 teams.
In November, the KCAC Volleyball Championship will continue to be played at the neutral site in Hutchinson. The Championship will follow a 12-team, double elimination format over two days at the Arena.
"We have enjoyed welcoming KCAC volleyball to Hutchinson for the last few years, and are excited about continuing this partnership. Scott Crawford and his team have been tremendous supporters of the Sports Arena renovation and we are grateful for the opportunity to continue hosting their events", said Holly Leiker, National Sports & Destination Sales Manager for Visit Hutch.
"With our recent successes using the Hutchinson Sports Arena to host the Fall Fling season kickoff tournament and the KCAC Volleyball Championships, this was the right time to extend our agreement with the city of Hutchinson ensuring continuity for the coming three school years," stated Crawford. "Hutchinson has really delivered with a quality facility, great support from local businesses, and helping the conference develop strong relationships with the overall community."
