Football seeding committee members named


Last updated 5/30/2019 at Noon

The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) has named the members of its football seeding committee for the 2019 season.

The committee will be tasked with seeding the 16-teams in each WIAA classification (eight-teams for the 1B classification) for the state football championships. The committee will have no bearing upon which teams qualify for the state tournament as teams will continue to qualify into the state bracket through the WIAA district allocation system.

Once the field is determined, the seeding committee will rank and place teams in the first round of the bracket based on their performance throughout the regular season and playoffs.

In the first year of the committee’s existence, three sub-committees were formed, each overseeing two WIAA classifications. In 2019, there will be six sub-committees, narrowing the focus to one classification each.

The seeding committee is scheduled to meet before the season begins on Aug. 19, and again at the conclusion of Week 10 to assign seeding position.

An application process was used to select knowledgeable and qualified people from around the state. The selected members were divided into the following six committees:
