The state volleyball tournament, after a three-year run in Grand Island, will return to Nebraska’s star city. The move was announced Wednesday by Lincoln Convention and Visitors Bureau executive director Jeff Maul.

The full release:

“In May of this year, the Lincoln CVB presented a bid to return the NSAA Volleyball Championships to Lincoln after a three year move to Grand Island. With a bid that included the new Pinnacle Bank Arena, Lincoln Public Schools and a renovated Devaney Sports Center, Lincoln was awarded the bid today for the next three years starting in 2014. Thanks to staff at all three entities for helping make this bid process a smooth one and the support that all of you give making Lincoln a great tourism destination,” Maul said.

“We are very proud of our community for helping us get to where we are today and voting to make the Pinnacle Bank Arena possible. With two of the best competition facilities located within 10 minutes of one another, a booming new entertainment district and wonderful city high schools, Lincoln has a lot to show in 2014 and we will welcome many visitors back home to Lincoln.”
