Division I 2014 Sub-State Playoff Info & Results:

Beginning in 2013, while all teams continued to belong to, and compete in, their respective District Leagues, instead of participating in Sub/District playoff tournaments within each District, Division I teams were assigned to one of 15 Sub-State Playoff Tournaments being held around the state. Each Sub-State Playoff Tournament Champion will earn a berth in the 16-team Division I State Tournament; the State Tournament Host (Eagan) also receives a berth -- rounding out the field to 16 teams.

If schedule and/or score information is available on-line for a particular 2014 Sub-State Tournament, it is noted via the highlighted links below. As applicable, please also refer to the "Score Report Document" below, if updated brackets are not being received regularly from a particular Sub-State Tournament.
