1. ‘Salem Is Always There’
by David Broughton, Sports Business Journal
“Next week, four NCAA Division III women’s soccer squads will travel to Salem, Va., with hopes of being crowned national champions.
For the people of Salem (population 25,373), this visit is a little extra special.'
The tournament will be the 100th NCAA championship hosted by Salem — more than any other town — and will take place almost 30 years to the day after its first one. In 1993, a sold-out crowd of 7,304 fans packed Salem Stadium, framed by the Blue Ridge Mountains, and endured below-freezing temperatures and wind gusts of 30 miles an hour to watch Mount Union (Ohio) rally late to beat Rowan (N.J.) in the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl, NCAA Division III’s football championship game.”
