NCAA Championships return to campus

Sacramento State will again host the 2005 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track and Field Championships, to be held June 8-11 at the A.G. Spanos Sports Complex. Sacramento has been chosen by the NCAA committee to host the championships in 2005, 2006 and 2007. It is the first time since 1945 the NCAA has chosen to hold the meet at the same site in successive years.

The meet follows on the heels of the 2004 U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials, where Sacramento State played host for the second time. The University also hosted the NCAA meet in 2003, which attracted more than 30,000 fans during the four-day competition.

More than 1,000 athletes will compete in Sacramento in June, including several U.S. Olympians. The list of Olympians that are eligible to compete in this year’s NCAA meet include Jonathan Johnson of Texas Tech (800 meters), Darold Williamson of Baylor (400), Bennie Brazell of LSU (400 hurdles), Monique Henderson of UCLA (400) and Chaunte Howard of Georgia Tech (high jump).

Four-day tickets for the NCAA Championships are priced between $25-65, and are available at or by calling (916) 566-6560. Volunteer applications are available at the Sacramento Sports Commission website at
