NASHVILLE AND CINCY BIDDING, TOO: Nashville Sports Council President & CEO Scott Ramsey said that the city's bids were "submitted to host the championships for women's bowling, men's and women's cross-country and men's and women's tennis." He said bids were submitted in all three cases for "at least two years" between '15-17 (NASHVILLE POST, 9/18). In Cincinnati, Steve Watkins reported the city has turned in bids to host "a dozen future NCAA championship events, with a bid coming soon to host NCAA men's basketball tournament games for the first time in more than two decades." The city has not hosted any NCAA title events since '97. The bids were submitted by the Cincinnati Collegiate and Community Collaborative group, which includes ADs from Miami Univ., Univ. of Cincinnati and Xavier Univ., as well as officials from the Greater Cincinnati Sports Corp., Cincinnati USA Convention & Visitors Bureau, the ATP/WTA Western & Southern Open and U.S. Bank Arena (BIZJOURNALS.com, 9/16).
