*NEW MIAA STATE WIDE TOURNAMENT & BRAND NEW WESTERN-MASS TOURNAMENT*

Beginning with the Fall 2021 sports season our state athletic association the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) has instituted a new postseason format across the state of Massachusetts.


With this new state wide tournament format going into effect this year the sectional championships as we knew them no longer exist.


In its place District 1 and the PVIAC (our district and conference) have come together to create our own Western-Mass tournament to keep long-standing traditions alive.


To find out more about the new tournament structure including; up to date power rankings, tournament formats, cutoff dates, game dates, how many teams qualify etc. please follow this link to our conference website.
