ECU AD Hits NC Legislature For Not Repealing HB2 Yet…

Excerpt From: WITN.

The North Carolina Sports Association sent a letter to lawmakers Monday, warning that more NCAA championship could be pulled from the state through 2022 if HB2 is not repealed.

That would mean a six year drought for North Carolina and potentially missing out on millions of dollars for the state.

So far even NCAA events have been moved from North Carolina over the controversial legislation. One of those is the 2017 Division 1 Women’s Golf Regional Championships at Ironwood Golf and Country Club in Greenville.

Now there’s the potential that more could be moved.

Jeff Compher, ECU Athletic Director, says, “Believe me, they want to come back to North Carolina as soon as they can. We are hoping that there is some movement in the legislature soon. So I am hoping it isn’t a five year plan we are dealing with this.”

Compher says this decision will not affect those sites where you earn the opportunity to host a regional or super regional. So with ECU Baseball ranked as high as number 6 in some pre-season polls, Clark-LeClair Stadium could see some action.
