This past year, the Summit League held two of their championships in Sioux Falls.

This upcoming sports season, there will only be one this year as the baseball championship will move to Tulsa, OK.

The 2015-2016 Summit League Championship schedule has been released by the league.  Here is the complete press release from the Summit League.

ELMHURST, Ill. - The Summit League has announced the dates, sites and hosts for all 19 of its sport championships for 2015-16 season Thursday.
