(INDIANAPOLIS) - The Road to Indianapolis starts October 4 for boys and girls high school soccer teams across the state. 

The IHSAA released the pairings for the 28th annual Boys and Girls Soccer State Tournaments on Sunday night.

Important dates for both tournaments are listed below:

  • Boys Sectional: October 4,6,8,9
  • Girls Sectional: October 4,5,7,9
  • Boys Regional: October 14 & 16
  • Girls Regional: October 13 & 16
  • Boys and Girls Semi-State: October 23
  • Boys and Girls State Finals: October 29 & 30

To conduct the random drawing for the state tournament, the IHSAA places ping-pong balls representing each school in a given sectional into a lottery-style air mix machine. A motorized fan in the bottom of the machine blows the balls around the inside of the transparent container and air then forces each ball up through a tube in random order. For example, the first ball retrieved from the machine will be the visiting team in game one with the second ball representing the home team in game one. The third ball to come out is the visitor in game two and the fourth ball the home team in game two. That same method is followed through all sectionals and regionals to determine every team’s placement in the bracket.

The portion of the draw that features local teams can be viewed below.
