If the Volleyball Playoffs Started Today, Playoff Projections Week 7 Class 3A

We have less than a month left of the volleyball season.  There are still plenty of question in the 3A ranks and these final few weeks of the season should help resolve these questions.  The RPI is also starting to normalize with only a few teams making big leaps.  The Meeting to set up Regionals is Oct 29th.

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.
