The Nebraska School Activities Association board voted to bring the high school volleyball championships back to Lincoln for three years, beginning in 2014. Grand Island has been the site for the past three year, sharing the first two seasons with Hastings. This is Grand Island’s final season. The renovated Devaney Center and new Pinnacle Bank Arena will be used for the three-day tournament, plus the NSAA can use any Lincoln’s six public high school gyms as needed. The Devaney Center is expected to host the finals.
“We are very proud of our community for helping us get to where we are today and voting to make the Pinnacle Bank Arena possible,” said Jeff Maul, executive director of the Lincoln Convention and Visitors Bureau, in a news release.
