North Augusta, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) -- As we told you first a couple of months ago, the Nike nationals were thinking about moving from North Augusta in 2017. That is now official, it won't be here but will be in Chicago.

Rick Meyer of North Augusta Parks and Rec confirming today the Nike Nationals are combining two events to help reduce travel costs, in particular, for the west coast teams. This also puts the event in a WNBA town where they could potentially have guest speakers in season.

Meyer is hoping this is only a one year deal and wants them back. This in no way effects the Peach Jam and actually, could be the same dates next July.
