2021 Championship Central

Meet Information

 

Date: May 14 and May 15, 2021

The date chosen for the meet was determined last February based on the dates of the Division III and the IC4A Championships, as a majority of NEICAAA members are from Division III and many of the Division I schools participate marginally in the IC4A Championships. Had NEICAAA known the Division III Championships would be cancelled, a different date would have been selected which would also have accommodated the Big East schools.
