Volleyball Top Ten Breakdown (All Classes)

If the Playoffs Started Today, Playoff Projections Volleyball Class 3A


The First official RPI has been released and with that State Tournament speculation can begin.  Like I did last year for basketball every week I will post my “If the Playoff Started Today”.  This really give a more in depth look at were teams could end up.  Of course, a few assumptions will have to be made.  Also remember we are still in September and things will change.  I am using today’s information to put a playoff projection together.

If the Playoffs Started Today, Playoff Projections Volleyball Class 3A

The Regional format for 3A goes as follows:

All League Champions (possibly 8) will automatically earn a berth to Regionals, the remaining teams (up to 36) will be selected based on the CHSAA RPI Rankings published at the end of the season.  Teams will then be seeded based on the CHSAA Regional Seeding Criteria: CHSAA RPI Rankings will be the primary seeding consideration and CHSAA seeding committee will only make changes based on splitting up league opponents and geographical considerations (if and when possible).  Teams seeded No.1 thru No.12 will host regionals.  All Regional Winners will automatically advance to the State Championships.
