EXPLANATION OF POST-SEASON PLAY
Friday Harbor High School spring sports teams have either entered into, or are about to begin the post season portion of their season. The post season for the teams begins with a District Tournament.
The tournament seeds the 1A teams from District 1 for advancement to the next level of post season, known as Tri-District. The District tournament is held because there are now nine 1A teams in District 1 that play in three different leagues.
There are five 1A, teams (Blaine, Nooksack, Meridian, Lynden Christian, and Mount Baker) in the Northwest Conference (NWC), one 1A team (FH) in the Northwest 1A/2B/1B conference, and three 1A teams (Coupeville, Kings, and South Whidbey) in the Cascade Conference.
Friday Harbor aligns with the five teams in the NWC by playing each other during the regular season to determine seeding into the District level of post season play. For Friday Harbor, games vs the other five NWC teams "count"/ determine for post season seeding.
The district tournaments look different logistically for some sports because of the sport involved, and because some 1A teams do not compete in all of the sports that Friday Harbor does.
However, the outcome is the same, the District 1 tournament determines the number of teams/players and the order for which they move on to the Tri-District level.
