COLUMBIA, MO. - The Missouri State High School Activities Association announced Wednesday that its Girls Volleyball Championships will move to Cape Girardeau's Show Me Center, beginning in November 2011.
The 36-year-old championship has been held at Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City the previous three years. Prior to being held in Kansas City, the championship was played exclusively on the campus of the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg since 1988.
The Show Me Center is a multipurpose facility located on the campus of Southeast Missouri State University. Since opening its doors in 1987 this joint project between the City of Cape Girardeau and the State of Missouri has matured into a regional facility serving the 250,000 residents of Southeast Missouri, Southern Illinois, and Western Kentucky. The Show Me Center, which annually hosts 250 meeting room and 160 arena events, is an entertainment, meeting, and gathering center.
