Summit League Organizers Look Ahead To Next Year

Summit League Organizers Look Ahead To Next Year
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Organizers of the Summit League Tournament say it was a big success and they are looking forward to growing the fan base at new facility.

"The atmosphere is so awesome! All the fans, all the noise; the players are excited and we are excited and bringing it all together makes the atmosphere wonderful," University of South Dakota Cheerleader Carrie Wintle said.

USD Women's Basketball fans had plenty to celebrate after their big win against number 6 seed Denver.

"I can see the team has been working hard all year and for this to culminate for a change to play in the big dance and make it to the NCAA tournament, we are incredibly proud of them for making it that far and are excited to see that success continue," Wintle said.

Sioux Falls has played host to the Summit League Tournament for the past six years. They have a contract until 2017 with the possibility to extend an agreement for additional five years.

"We really feel like we will be here long term," Summit League Commissioner Tom Douple said.

The Sioux Falls Arena and Convention Center saw a record breaking crowd on Monday with more than 6,700 spectators packing the stands.

"The event has become part of the community of Sioux Falls and this is an event that a lot of people in the state take ownership of because they feel it's their event and you can see that by the number of support that comes out each and every night," Sioux Falls Sport Authority Director Wes Hall said.

Next year, they will be able to host around 12,000 spectators in the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center. In addition, they will also be adding a fan fest and are looking forward to more space.

"We have grown as a league and this tournament has grown and now we are ready to move both the tournament our fans and our student athletes, we have come to the point where this new arena is deserving of everyone," Douple said.
