11/15/18 – Format Change to Field Hockey Championship

November 15, 2018 Field Hockey Blog Updates


At its regular meeting at the KHSAA Offices on November 14th, the Board of Control made several adjustments to the 2019 fall sports seasons following a review of the fall championships.

The Board of Control made a slight revision to the State Field Hockey Tournament to move its tournament format in line with the other KHSAA-sanctioned team sports. Beginning in 2019, only the regional champions in Field Hockey will advance to the state tournament. Previously, Field Hockey was the only KHSAA team sport in which regional runner-ups advanced to the state tournament.

The corresponding dates for Field Hockey remain the same with the first playing date on August 19, 2019. The complete chart is on the KHSAA website at and once championship dates are confirmed with host venues, additional information will be distributed.

Best of luck to each of you in the offseason and we look forward to a successful 2019 season.
