SAN BRUNO, Calif. -- The West Coast Conference has announced its 2012-13 championship dates. The Conference holds ten postseason championship events: men's and women's cross country, men's and women's basketball, men's and women's golf, men's and women's tennis, women's rowing and baseball. The championship sites are determined through the Conference's legislative process.
The 2012 WCC cross country championships will be held at Fernhill Park in Portland, Ore., on October 27. This year's cross country event will mark the first course change since 1985. Last year, the BYU men's and San Francisco women's teams took first place.
The much-anticipated 2013 West Coast Conference Basketball Championships return to the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, Nev., beginning Wednesday, March 6. The event will feature all 18 WCC basketball teams, with both the men's and women's champions crowned in front of a live national television audience on Monday, March 11.
April and May are busy months for WCC teams, with champions crowned in golf, tennis, rowing, and baseball. The WCC men's and women's golf championships return to the Northwest in 2013 and will take place at Gold Mountain Golf Club in Bremerton, Wash. The golf championships are a three-day event, with golfers competing on April 15-17. One week later, the men's and women's tennis championships return to Barnes Tennis Center in San Diego from April 24-27. On Saturday, May 18, the WCC women's rowing championship will take place on Lake Natoma. Located near Sacramento, Calif., Lake Natoma served as site of the 2011 NCAA Rowing Championships.
