More HB2 fallout: NCAA announces new sites for events removed from NC

ncaaCNN Money reports that alternate locations for the NCAA championship games pulled from North Carolina in response to HB2 have been announced. It turns out that North Carolina will be losing out to California, Georgia, Massachusetts, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. Here’s the list:

— 2016 Division I Women’s Soccer Championship, College Cup, Dec. 2 and 4: Moved from Cary to San Jose, California

— 2017 Division I Women’s Lacrosse Championship, May 26 and 28: Moved from Cary to Boston
