CANTON St. Lawrence University will host two NCAA championship events in 2015, according to information released by the NCAA on Wednesday.
The first event the Saints will host will be the Division I, II and III alpine and nordic ski championships, which will be at Lake Placid the first time the event has been there since 1982.
SLU will also host a national championship event on campus as the outdoor track and field championship will be contested at Leckonby Stadium for the first time since 2003.
We are thrilled to have received these events to showcase the university and north country to student-athletes from across the country, SLU athletic director Margie Strait said. The facilities in Lake Placid and our very own Merrick-Pinkard Track at Leckonby Stadium should provide the competitors and fans with an excellent experience in 2015.
