MSHSL to seed top 5 teams in tournaments 19 Jun 12

The Minnesota State High School League will now be seeding 5 teams in their state tournaments. At the latest High School League Board of Directors meeting it was voted that at the tournaments where teams are seeded, teams will now be seeded 1-5, with a blind draw occurring for the final 3 teams. Supporters of this change had previously stated the 5th best team sometimes got matched playing the #1 seeded team and this change will now prevent that. The sports affected include Basketball, Hockey, LaCrosse, Soccer, Volleyball, Wrestling, and Adapted Sports.
