The seeding meeting is Monday, May 16 @ 7:00 PM at the Section IV office.

 

A maximum 16 teams qualify for Class C and D.  AA, A, and B will be an open tournament.

In order to qualify for sectionals, teams must:

* 2 points for a loss to a school in a higher class.

*** To determine final point average, divide the total number of points by the number of games played. ***
