State football champions

Posted: Friday, October 08, 2004

The scores of the state football championship games since 1983. The state tournament has been sponsored by the Alaska School Activities Association since 1990. Before 1990, there was a state invitational tournament which featured the Cook Inlet Football Conference champion against the champion of either the Railbelt Conference or Northern Lights Conference champion, and a consolation game between the CIFC runner-up and the NLC or RBC winner not in the state invitational title game. ASAA created a four-team small schools state tournament in 2000.

x-Two teams - Bartlett and West Anchorage - declared themselves champions in 1989 and the title is still in dispute. Bartlett, which beat West Anchorage in the regular season and won the Cook Inlet Football Conference title, lost to West in a rescheduled state invitational championship game after the CIFC couldn't find a team from the Northern Lights Conference or Railbelt Conference to play West in the consolation game (Eielson, Soldotna and Palmer all declined to play West, then Palmer beat Eielson in a post-season game). After losing to West, Bartlett beat Railbelt Conference co-champion West Valley the next weekend in the matchup that was supposed to have been the original state invitational title game. The Alaska School Activities Association created its football state tournament the next year.
