WIAA changes Class 2B & 1B state volleyball formats

Staff Writer

The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association Executive Board voted to make accommodations to the 1B and 2B state volleyball tournaments for member schools that recognize the Saturday Sabbath upon the recommendation from legal counsel.
From this recommendation, the executive board decided the tournament would need to be altered and began to work on scheduling solutions.
To make these accommodations, the 1B, 2B state tournament will be moved to a Thursday-Friday format (Nov. 9-10) while remaining at the Yakima Valley SunDome.
The 1A state tournament, will remain on a Friday-Saturday format (Nov. 10-11) and will be played at the Yakima Valley SunDome or at Pierce College in Puyallup.
