From the IHSAA:

The 2011 IHSAA Girls Basketball State Finals will return to Fort Wayne for a second year following approval by the IHSAA Executive Committee on Thursday.

After hosting the state finals for the first time last March, a one-year agreement again has been reached to play the four state championship games at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum on Saturday, March 5, 2011.

“Fort Wayne and the people at Memorial Coliseum were tremendous hosts for the girls basketball state finals last winter,” said Commissioner Blake Ress. “The reception the teams and fans received made it a great experience and we look forward to going back again next March.”

In addition to Fort Wayne, a bid to host the event also was received from Terre Haute which had proposed the games be played at the Hulman Center. No Indianapolis venues are available on next year’s date.
