Anne Davis and Crissy Haslam, the First Ladies of Nashville and Tennessee, respectively, will serve as honorary chairs for the 2014 NCAA Women’s Final Four, which will take place at Bridgestone Arena.

The Ohio Valley Conference and Nashville Sports Council, which teamed to secure the event, made the announcement on behalf of the local organizing committee.

“The NCAA Women’s Final Four will leave a historical mark on Nashville and Tennessee,” Haslam said.  “I am grateful to serve as honorary chair with First Lady of Nashville, Anne Davis, and I look forward to helping make the Final Four special for the student-athletes, administrators and fans of women’s basketball.”

Attendance at the Women’s Final Four has exceeded 16,000 per session every year since 1995 and an annual average of more than 500 media credentials has been issued over that same period.

The 2014 event, which was awarded to Nashville in 2008, is set for April 6 and 8 of that year.
 
“I am thrilled to serve alongside First Lady Haslam as honorary chair of this unique community event,” Davis said.  “Hosting the 2014 NCAA Women’s Final Four is a wonderful opportunity for our city to showcase our new Music City Center, our downtown and celebrate the incredible student-athletes who have reached the pinnacle in their sport.”
