Girls basketball semifinals and finals, plus wrestling finals, team and individual, find new homes

East Lansing – The championship rounds for girls basketball, team wrestling and individual wrestling will move to new venues for the 2017-18 season, as approved by the Representative Council of the Michigan High School Athletic Association during its annual Spring Meeting this past Sunday and Monday.

The girls basketball semifinals and finals, played from 2004-06 and then 2010-17 at the Breslin Center at Michigan State University, will move to Van Noord Arena on the campus of Calvin College in Grand Rapids. The team wrestling finals, contested the last two seasons at McGuirk Arena at Central Michigan University after a long run at Battle Creek’s Kellogg Arena, will begin a minimum of a four-year run at Wings Event Center in Kalamazoo. 

The individual finals, previously a three-day event hosted by The Palace of Auburn Hills from 2002 through this past March, will be contested at Ford Field in Detroit over two days.
