Fans of college athletics are getting some good news today.  The NCAA has awarded Sacramento a number of upcoming Postseason events.

Sacramento State University has been awarded four NCAA postseason events in the coming years.

"We're gonna have women's basketball regional, cross country regional, outdoor track and field West regional championships, and women's rowing championships in two years," said Mike Sophia with the Sacramento Sports Commission.

He said the NCAA's decision to return to California's Capital City makes a statement about how they've been received in the past,

"We've got a great track record and that goes not just for the folks that are involved in hosting it but again for the community that gets behind it, comes out and supports it," Sophia commented.

He also believes the resurgence of the Sacramento Kings is also having a postive effect on how our city is being viewed as a sports community.
