IHSAA Releases Pairings For 2020 Boys & Girls Soccer State Tournaments

Best of luck to all our area teams.

(Indianapolis, Ind.) - Boys and girls soccer programs across the state now know who they will have to go through to win a sectional championship. 

The IHSAA released the pairings for the 27th annual Boys and Girls Soccer State Tournaments on Monday night. There will be 299 boys teams and 266 girls teams set for competition next week.

Both tournaments mirror each other beginning with 16 sectionals in each of the three classes running October 5-10. Regionals will be played Saturday, October 17, with semi-state matchups on Saturday, October 24 at four sites. The winners will advance to the state championship matches on October 30-31. Two of those championship matches will be played indoors on Friday (Oct. 30) at the Grand Park Sports Event Center in Westfield while the other four matches will be played outdoors on Saturday (Oct. 31) at Fishers High School. 

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.

  • Costume Swap at the Dearborn County Recycling Center

    The Dearborn County Recycling Center’s Costume Swap was created as an annual event offering customers the chance to share and reuse costumes that would otherwise only be worn once. Last year over 800 individuals used the program. The program saves money and reduces waste by reusing items that otherwise would only be used once. Over 1,000 costumes for adults and children are available. Masks, wigs, makeup, accessories, treat bags and décor are also available. All available costumes are clean and in good condition, with many being brand new. The sizes of costumes range from infant and toddler to adult sizes. Costume Swap even has a small selection of pet costumes. Participants are asked to bring a costume that is clean, in ready-to-wear condition, and free of rips, tears, and stains. To be considered for exchange, all costumes must also be complete with original items, including masks and accessories that came with the costume originally. Those without a costume to exchange are asked to make a cash donation to the reuse program. Shopping times and the number of guests allowed to shop at a time will be limited. Visit dearborncountyrecycles.com for more information. Participants should be prepared with a donation in case their costume is not accepted. The program does not operate as a charity. Costume Swap is open to everyone; it is not exclusively for Dearborn County residents.
