EDITOR'S NOTE: The following article by Jim Riggs originally appeared in The Post-Journal in April 2013.
On April 6, one team will be on top of the world after it wins the NCAA Women's Basketball Championship in New Orleans. But it won't be official until that team is awarded the national championship trophy. The presenter for the second year in a row will be Southwestern Central School graduate Cheryl Bailey.
Bailey, who is the senior associate athletic director for sports administration at the University of Wisconsin, is in her second and last year as chair of the NCAA Women's Basketball Committee. So she will again be on ESPN presenting the championship trophy like she did last season to the University of Connecticut.
