Alaska High School state football champions

Posted: Sunday, October 24, 2004

The high school state football championship game results over the years. From 1983-89, the game was called the Invitational State Championship and the game was sponsored by the Cook Inlet Football Conference. The CIFC champion played the winner of either the Northern Lights Conference (Mat-Su Valley/Kenai Peninsula) or the Railbelt Conference (Fairbanks) for the title, with the CIFC runner-up playing the remaining NLC or RBC champion in the Consolation Bowl. The CIFC decided the matchups. In 1990, the Alaska School Activities Association created the Alaska State Championships, which started out as a four-team tournament and expanded to an eight-team tournament in 1993. A four-team small schools tournament was created 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.
