Billings NAIA Tournament A Huge Success!

Congratulations are in order for Alex Tyson and her staff of the Billings Chamber of Commerce and the excellent work that they have done in hosting the NAIA Division One national women’s basketball tournament.  Three short years ago when this event was held in Independence Missouri the week-long tournament only had a combined total attendance of just 3,900.  Last year in its first year in Billings the event tripled in attendance to 12,993.  This year…it was up another 26% to 17,564.   It was helpful that we had four teams from Montana competing.  Plus the Lady Bulldogs of Montana Western advanced all the way to fab four.

Billings will host the women’s NAIA tournament again in 2019.
