    4/17/2014

    RENTON, Wash. – The WIAA, through its membership in the NFHS Network, will add 1A, 2A soccer and 3A softball to its coverage of the WIAA/Dairy Farmers of Washington/Les Schwab Tires Spring State Championships, the Association announced, Wednesday.

    “The Network continues to be a platform where supporters of Washington high school athletics and activities can view the championships from across the globe,” WIAA Executive Director Mike Colbrese said.  “This demonstrates our commitment to expanding our coverage and continuing to uphold the quality of the broadcasts.”

    For a third-straight year, the WIAA Network will broadcast the 2A, 3A, 4A State Track and Field Championships at Mt. Tahoma High School in Tacoma.  The three-day event begins May 29 and concludes May 31.

    The Network will broadcast 3rd/4th place and championship games on Saturday, May 30 for 1A, 2A, 3A, 4A boys soccer, 3A, 4A softball and 3A, 4A baseball.

    The 3rd/4th place soccer games will air at 10 a.m. (1A, 3A) and noon (2A, 4A) with the championship games scheduled for 2 p.m. (1A, 3A) and 5 p.m. (2A, 4A) at Sunset Chev Stadium in Sumner (1A, 2A) and Sparks Stadium in Puyallup (3A, 4A).

    The Network will also broadcast the Unified Sports 2014 Washington High School State Soccer Championships.  Both matches are scheduled for 4 p.m. with the Division 2 Championship being held at Sumner and the Division 1 Championship in Puyallup.  Unified Sports brings together athletes with and without intellectual disabilities, who train and compete on the same teams.  2014 marks the first year the Unified Sports State Championships will be held at the same facility as the WIAA State Championships.

    The 3A and 4A 3rd/4th place softball games are slated for 1:30 p.m. with the championship games to follow at 3:30 p.m.  The 3A softball tournament will be held at the Regional Athletic Complex in Lacy, while the 4A championship will be played at the Merkel Sports Complex in Spokane.

    Finally, the 3A and 4A 3rd/4th place baseball games will begin at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.  The championship games will start at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. at Gesa Stadium in Pasco.

    The live webcasts require a subscription to the NFHS Network and all events can be viewed by visiting www.nfhsnetwork.com/wiaa.  A day pass, which provides 24 hour access to all WIAA events as well as other high school events from around the country costs $9.95.  A month pass, which lasts for 30 days, costs $14.95.  All events will be archived for free on-demand viewing, 72 hours after the completion of the final event.
