Tie Break Procedure
SCIAA Constitution and Bylaws;
103.2 Tie Breaking Procedure
- Head-to-Head competition in league play. If teams have played each other during the season, the
outcome of these games will resolve the tie.
- If a tie remains after (a), the tiebreaker will be determined by how teams have done against the next highest seeded teams in their respective league: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc.
- If the tie remains after (a) and (b), the overall win-loss record against teams within that classification will be used to break the tie. This only includes games played in your classification with member teams of TSSAA.
- If the tie remains after (a), (b), and (c), the best overall record will be used to break the tie. The best overall record includes games and tournaments with all teams associated with the National
Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS). Scheduled games must be on an Official SCIAA
Schedule to count for championship purposes.
- If a tie remains, a coin will be tossed. A draw will be used to determine who will call the coin toss
