Football Seeding Committee Announced for 2018 Season

RENTON, Wash. - The WIAA announced the members of its Football Seeding Committee for the 2018 season, Wednesday.

The committee will be tasked with seeding the 16-teams in each WIAA Classification (eight-team for the 1B classification) for the State Football Championships. Teams will still qualify for the playoffs through the WIAA District allocation system and the committee will have no bearing upon which teams qualify for the State tournament. 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. This system will replace the draw system which has been used in previous seasons.

The committee is scheduled to meet before the season starts on August 12, 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 three committees to focus on specific classifications.
