The New Mexico Activities Association announced that it has approved a change to the seeding and selection committee for state tournaments.
The NMAA, the governing body of most interscholastic high school sports in the state, approved a motion to have its staff serve as the seeding and selection committee for sports during the 2010-11 school year.
Previously, districts throughout the state would elect a representative to serve on the seeding committees for the various state tournaments.
The change was approved by the NMAA board of directors at its regular meeting held Thursday.
The board also decided, at the same meeting, to table a measure that would’ve reverted both the baseball and softball state tournaments to their previous format.
Prior to the spring 2010 season, the state baseball state tournament first rounds were a best-of-three series and the softball state tournament consisted of a double-elimination bracket. This season, however, the baseball first round was a singe-elimination contest and softball had single-elimination play throughout.
The format changes, which were put in place to save money for NMAA member schools, according to Los Alamos Hilltopper softball manager Roger Anaya, weren’t popular with either Anaya or Los Alamos baseball manager Mike Gill.
