Auburn to host swimming and diving NCAA championships, gymnastics regional in 2012

A pair of NCAA women's events will be coming to an Auburn arena near you in the not-so-distant future.

The NCAA announced Friday that Auburn will host the Division I women's swimming and diving championships and an NCAA regional in women's gymnastics, both in 2012. The swimming and diving championship will take place March 15-17 at the James E. Martin Aquatics Center, while the gymnastics regional will take place April 7 at the Auburn Arena.

“We’re very pleased that the NCAA has selected Auburn as the host for these two events in 2012,” Auburn athletics director Jay Jacobs said. “These championships will be great not only for Auburn athletics and our student-athletes, but the university and community as well. Thousands of coaches, athletes and fans from across the country will be treated to first-class events and Southern hospitality that is second to none.”

It's the third time Auburn will host the swimming and diving championships. It hosted the women's event in 2003 and the men's in 1998.

Auburn is one of six schools to host a gymnastics regional in 2012. It last hosted a regional in 1991, although it held the 2005 women's championships in 2005.
