Volleyball Top Ten Breakdown (All Classes)

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


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

With most teams playing a handful of games I figured I could start looking towards the playoffs.  Of course, I will have to make some assumptions and things will change especially once we enter league play.  This really gives a more in depth look at were teams could end up.

Class 3A

All League Champions will automatically earn a berth to Regionals.  The remaining teams (up to 36) will be selected based on the CHSAA RIP Rankings published at the end of the regular season.

Teams will then be seeded based on the CHSAA Regional Seeding Criteria:

  1. The CHSAA RPI rankings will be the primary seeding consideration.
  2. CHSAA Seeding committee will only makes changes based on splitting up league opponents and geographical considerations (If and when possible).

Team seeded No 1 thru 12 will host regionals.

All Regional winners will automatically advance to the state tournament.
