NDHSAA News Release - Friday, September 9

VALLEY CITY, ND. – The North Dakota High School Activities Association (NDHSAA) signed a multi-year partnership on August 15th, 2022 with Wanamaker Corporation, creator of the NDHSAA Golf app and iWanamaker golf event management software. The NDHSAA Golf app powered by iWanamaker is a robust and scalable golf event management platform designed specifically for high school golf. The partnership makes iWanamaker and the NDHSAA Golf app the official online event management, player rosters, live scoring, and rankings hub for NDHSAA Golf. The iWanamaker platform will be the official event management software for all NDHSAA regular and postseason tournaments, advancements and state-tournament qualifying. The agreement begins with the 2022-23 NDHSAA Golf season.

Through its proven Golf Tournament Management Platform (iWanamaker and associated native apps), the platform will also provide athletic directors, coaches and student-athletes free access to schedules, live leaderboards, player scorecards, rankings and more. Spectators must purchase a ticket to access content and a portion of the ticket revenue is shared with the NDHSAA and its member schools.

“We are excited to be in a partnership with Wanamaker Corporation,” NDHSAA Executive Director Matthew Fetsch said. “This will ensure fans, parents, student-athletes and school officials continue to receive real-time results as they support the best high school student-athletes in America during regular and postseason events.”

Wanamaker Corporation, the pioneer of online secure scoring for high school golf, has long served multiple high school state associations. The NDHSAA has been using the iWanamaker platform since 2014 and since that time, 15 additional states, thousands of schools, and governing bodies are already using Wanamaker Corp technologies to streamline golf tournament setup, player registration, secure scoring, rankings, and data management.

"We are excited about our partnership with the NDHSAA to bring online secure scoring, accurate golfer rankings and increased scoring integrity to all members of the North Dakota high school golf community,” Wanamaker Corporation CEO Doyle Heisler said. “North Dakota, along with Colorado and Arizona, were the first three states to adopt the platform and I am so thankful for Matt Fetsch and Justin Fletschock, who have made the decision to utilize the iWanamaker platform for the past eight years. I was born and raised in North Dakota and am so pleased to have the opportunity to offer the platform to the high school community in North Dakota. The NDHSAA Golf app powered by iWanamaker gives spectators the option to follow live leaderboards from anywhere in the world. It brings me joy when I get calls from grandparents thanking me for giving them an opportunity to follow their grandchildren's season.”
