The fifteen state tournament qualifiers were divided into three separate five-team draws. After round-robin pool competition, the top team in each pool and a wild-card team advance to the semifinal round.

Ties are broken based on records in head-to-head competition among tied teams. If a clear winner cannot be determined from head-to-head results, the tie is broken by calculating the ratio of runs allowed to defensive innings played for all teams involved in the tie. The team with the lowest runs-per-defensive-inning ratio advances.

In the event of a tie involving three or more teams, once the initial tie is broken, the remaining tied teams are again compared on head-to-head record to determine if a clear winner can be identified. If no clear winner can be identified from head-to-head results among the remaining tied teams, the runs-per-defensive-inning ratio is again used. This process is repeated until all ties have been broken.

Grosse Pointe Farms-City wins Pool 1 based on a superior runs per defensive inning ratio (Grosse Pointe Farms-City – 0.65; Bay City Southwest 0.77; Petoskey 1.00).

Roosevelt Park wins the wild card berth in the semifinal round based on a superior runs per defensive inning over Bay City Southwest and Petoskey.
