The MAAC has selected Canisius as the hosts of the 2013 Swimming & Diving and Men's Lacrosse Championships, announced by the conference on Tuesday.

The 2013 MAAC Men's and Women's Swimming & Diving Championships are returning to Buffalo for the third-straight year. Canisius and Niagara are both set to host the championship at the Burt Flickinger Center on the city campus of Erie Community College from February 14 to February 16.

Canisius will also host the MAAC Men's Lacrosse Championship for the fifth time at the Demske Sports Complex. The defending conference champions, the Griffs hosted the league title game in 2004, 2006, 2009 and 2011. Canisius, who earned the MAAC crown with a 10-9 win versus Siena in Poughkeepsie this past season, will host the semifinals on May 3 and the championship on May 5.

It marks the fourth-straight season that the Griffs welcome two MAAC championships to Buffalo. During the 2009-10 year, Canisius was the site of the volleyball and softball tournaments, while hosting both the swimming & diving and men's lacrosse championships in 2011 and swimming & diving and women's lacrosse in 2012.

Last season, the Golden Griffin women's lacrosse team became the first Canisius program to win a championship in Buffalo since the women's basketball team took the 2005 crown at HSBC Arena.
