Subject: Tie Breakers

NHIAA the criteria for seeding a team is as follows:
1. Rating* in head-to-head competition which shall be the established team rating system based
upon contests against opponents involved in the tie providing they have played each other the
same number of times.
2. Rating against NHIAA class opponents selected for the tournament including all teams involved
in a tie for the last position. Once the tournament teams have been selected, the teams that were
tied for the last position are no longer used in breaking ties as they are not considered tournament
teams.
3. Quality of wins against tournament teams in class including all teams involved in a tie for the
last position. (Ranking) **
4. Rating against class opponents on the road. ***
5. Rating against class opponents at home.
6. Wins on the road regardless of class.
7. Wins at home regardless of class.
8. If teams are tied after the first seven criteria, the team that defeated the highest NHIAA seeded
team in their class (includes both tournament and non-tournament teams) will be selected.
9. As determined by the sports committee.
Once a criterion has been found to break the tie, it will be used to rank the teams involved in the tie.
If, after the original criterion has ranked the teams, existing tie(s) shall be broken by starting at
criterion number 1 (head to head) down through the remaining criteria until the tie is broken.
Example:
Five teams (A, B, C, D and E) are involved in a tie.
All five are 2 and 2 in head to head.
Records against teams selected for the tournament are:
A: 8-4; B: 8-4; C: 7-5; D: 7-5 and E: 6-6.
Teams A and B would be ranked 1st and 2nd in the tiebreaker.
Teams C and D would be ranked 3rd and 4th in the tiebreaker.
Team E would be 5th in the tiebreaker.
To break the tie of A and B, use criterion 1 (head to head).
