WIAA Schools Recognized by NFHS Network

RENTON, Wash. - Sultan High School and Wahkiakum High School were recognized by the National Federation of High Schools for their dedication and contributions to the NFHS Network as part of the School Broadcast Program.

Sultan High School was honored with Elite distinction, one of 40 schools in the country to earn the specific recognition. This marks the third time that Sultan has earned recognition from the NFHS Network after being named a Select school each of the last two years. Elite school criteria included at least 40 live broadcasts of five or more different sports.

Wahkiakum, which was in its debut season with the program last year, was one of 88 schools nationwide to be named an NFHS Select school. To earn the honor, a school must produce more than 30 live broadcasts of at least four different sports during the 2015-16 school year.

These Elite and Select schools distinguished themselves as leaders among the more than 1,500 schools around the nation which make up the NFHS Network. The full list of participating schools in Washington can be found at http://www.nfhsnetwork.com/states/WA.

“These two schools are leaders in this innovative opportunity that is available to WIAA member schools,” said WIAA Executive Director Mike Colbrese. “Sultan High School has been consistently tremendous over the years in providing exposure for their athletic teams and Wahkiakum has quickly shown their dedication as well.”

WIAA schools that join the School Broadcast Program are empowered to produce professional grade events streamed live and available on their school-branded channel on the NFHS Network site.
