WIAA Executive Board Meets: State Volleyball Review Recommendations, State Softball and Golf Sites Finalized

RENTON, Wash. – The WIAA Executive Board held its December meeting, Sunday and Monday, December 5-6, 2010. The Board took the following action:

  1. Approved an earlier implementation schedule for a revenue sharing plan.
  2. Approved on First Reading (2nd reading, January; 3rd and final reading, March) the following State Volleyball tournament recommendations:
    1. Continue with 16-teams per classification and combine classifications when possible
    2. Continue with modified double elimination tournament; adjust placings (see bracket)
    3. Continue with best of five sets (3/5) for championship matches, utilize best of three sets (2/3) for all consolation matches, consolidate all tournaments into two days
      - eliminates play on Thursday (lowest attendance day of the current format), and would reduce facility expenses (for the third rental day); facility savings would be approximately $5,000 in Yakima and $7,500 in Kennewick
      -  adequate lodging would be available in both Yakima and Kennewick
      - 2/3 fee would need to be negotiated with WOA (based on 2002-03 figures, potential savings would be approximately $2,000)
      Best of three sets (2/3) will utilize rally scoring to 25 points 
    4. Allow leagues, by league adoption, to utilize 2/3 during the regular season (will require an amendment)
    5. Secure an alternate site for the 2A, 3A and 4A, if possible
      Site updates for 2011:  Spokane Arena (4 courts), Showare Facility in Kent (3 courts) and Comcast Arena in Everett (4 courts) are not available; St Martin’s in Lacey (3 courts) is interested and checking on availability
      - 2 classifications can be played on three courts in two days (which would require an additional facility for a classification)
  3. Approved the 2010-12 Winter Allocations.
  4. Approved the following state tournament sites for the next two years:
    1. 1A Softball: To be determined during January meeting
    2. 3A Softball: RAC, Lacey
    3. 4A Softball: Merkel Sports Complex, Spokane
  5. Approved the 2011-12 State Golf Sites.  To view the sites click HERE
  6. Approved to extend the WIAA Hall of Fame Nomination deadline to January 14, 2011.
