So the history guy that I am....I noticed something strange today, in D2-4, about how the the WIAA pairs sectionals. Since the start of the decade(as far back as I can go) the WIAA has followed a pattern......except for last year. What was their reason for messing with the pairings last year? Did they try to influence the state finals in the divisions?

2009 - One would think 1:3 and 2:4...but no, it was:
1:4
2:3

why?

And this year:
2010
1:2
3:4
This makes no sense.

I looked at the girls also and it's messed up even worse. How does the WIAA figure this out.....if there is no set pattern or criteria.....do they determine their own matchups?

The only thing I can think of is that by doing this it guaranteed that there would not be an all private school final in D4?

They do a three-year rotation where all sectionals play the other once. Then a new rotation is put in. In the past, they just kept the rotation within that three-year cycle the same, but changed it last year. It will still even out that each sectional will play the others in a three-year period.

Well at least one of the sectional final sites in D2 got moved to a better gym (Waunakee) that doesn't look as ugly as its' predecessor.

It still does not make any sense to me why they changed it though. why not just keep the same pattern?

Every 3 years the pattern is changed. Makes sense to me.

did you not look at my first post? It has always been the same patters, except for last year.

Did you look at the explaination why? Maybe they drew the same pattern twice when they redrew. Every 3 years they redraw the order.
