1 --- On the last Friday of the regular season... usually about 11:00 or 11:30 p.m., maybe not until midnight or so... the entire 224 team field for the Playoffs will be announced. Be patient, if it possibly takes longer; one year, the Playoff info did not get released by the WIAA until about 1:45 or 2:00 in the morning!
2 --- The four 8-team groups making up each division then will be announced in the wee hours Friday night Saturday morning, usually about 11:30 p.m., or maybe around midnight, sometimes later. Each division has FOUR groups which are then placed on the brackets.
3 --- Seeding by coaches, of teams within those 8-team groups, will take place on Saturday morning in meetings that usually start at 11 o'clock a.m., and typically take about an hour.
WisSports web site - Fastest way to get latest Playoff info:
Starting about 9:00 p.m. on the last Friday night of the regular season, be sure to check out the www.WisSports.net web site, as they will be the fastest way to stay on top of the Playoff material you want or need. For years, they have been very close to 100% accurate in their predictions, and, often they have the field set *before* it is announced officially by the WIAA. In the past, sometimes, the WIAA web site locked up on the weekend Playoff info is announced, so be prepared to check the WisSports web site.
WisSports will post a list of all teams in the field... by enrollment... so you can see which teams will be assigned to which division. It is the *best* way to see the entire Playoff field take shape! Links:
