Several Postseason Changes Approved by KSHSAA Executive Board

The Kansas State High School Activities Association Executive Board approved several items earlier this week, including State Football being held at three locations with three games taking place at each site. This will start in 2024.

Locations will be determined at a later date, but one championship game will be held on Friday, with two more on Saturday at each location.

In a press release, Executive Director Bill Faflick said the experience for the fans was one of the main reasons for the change.

“The KSHSAA is at a point where we want to look at what combining sites in a few of our championships would look like. We believe it can add to the student and fan experience,” said Executive Director Bill Faflick. “Kansas has a rich tradition of great community support where we host championships. We do not anticipate that changing, it will just look slightly different depending on the year and selection of hosts.”

State soccer and wrestling will also see changes coming in the near future.

The soccer championships will be played at one site starting in the fall of 2024, with the following adjustments to the postseason:


-Seeding Criteria Remains the Same (East #1-4 & West #1-4)

– Higher seeds host

– Play on Monday (Boys SCW 18 & Girls SCW 47)

– Postponement/Make-Up Date = Tuesday


– Seeding criteria remains the same (East #1 vs. West #2 & West #1 vs. East #2)

– Higher seeds host

– Play on Wednesday (Boys SCW 18 & Girls SCW 47)

– Postponement/Make-Up Date = Thursday

Consolation and Championship Finals:

– All classes played at one location

– Play on Saturday (Boys SCW 18 & Girls SCW 47)

Wrestling will also see changes for this school year. Following the previously release change to 4A and 3-1A boys and girls wrestling in Salina, 6A and 5A will follow the same three day format at Hartman Arena.
