"ROOT was willing to put the games on TV without a charge," Mike Colbrese, the executive director of the WIAA, told the News Tribune, "but said the production cost was too expensive to pay a fee."
So parents and fans who want to see the 3A and 4A title games will have to travel to Tacoma if they want to see the games. Or they can watch online via the WIAA's online video portal, wiaanetwork.com.
The title games for the 1B and 2B classifications will be televised on SWX in Spokane, North Idaho, Tri-Cities and Yakima. SWX will also broadcast two games on the first day of the tournament and two more games on the second day.

Thurs., March 1
7:15 p.m. - Columbia vs. NW Yeshiva (1B Girls - first round)
9:00 p.m. - Cusick vs. Sunnyside Christian (1B Girls - first round)
