Southeast District Athletic Board Seed Policy and Procedure:

Per the direction of the Southeast District Athletic Board, all teams in a bracketed tournament will be seeded using a NCAA bracket.  The manager will distribute online voting materials/instructions prior to the online voting period.  There will be no draw meeting held.  Each girl’s coach will need to submit their team’s bio information by 11:59 PM on Wednesday, January 31.  Each boy’s coach will need to submit their team’s bio information by 11:59 PM on Wednesday, February 7.  Furthermore, each girl’s coach will need to vote and have his/her ballot submitted by Friday, February 2 at 11:59 PM and each boy’s coach will need to vote and have his/her ballot submitted by Friday, February 9 at 11:59 PM.  Ties will be broken by highest frequency (total votes at that seed line or higher) and if a tie is not breakable, a coin-flip will be conducted by the SEDAB.  Seeded teams will be placed on the NCAA bracket according to their seed.  The final tally and voting breakdown will be available on baumspage and the brackets will be posted at www.seodab.org no later than 3:30 PM on Sunday, February 4 for the girl’s tournaments and Sunday, February 11 for the boy’s tournaments

Any school that does not submit their team bio or cast their vote by the respective deadlines will not be permitted to submit their team bio or vote at a later time.
