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 todays information to put a playoff projection.

If the Playoffs Started Today, Playoff Projections Volleyball Class 1A

The Regional format for 1A goes as follows:

Every District will qualify 3 teams to regionals.  Single Elimination may be used in preliminary rounds.  Round Robin or Pool Play is recommended in Following Rounds.  1A District Winners will earn the right to host Regionals.  2A-5A sites are determined by a Regional Pairings Committee.  All Regionals have three teams-A total of three matches will be played.  All Regional Winners will automatically earn a berth to the State Championships.  4 Wildcard teams will be selected after the completion of the Regionals Tournaments.  Teams will be selected based on the CHSAA RPI Rankings published the Monday After Regionals.  Teams must have participated in Regionals in order to be considered as a “Wild Card Team”.  8 Regional Winners plus 4 Wildcard Teams advance to State.
