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

The RPI is starting to become a big factor now that we are deeper into the season.  Things are really starting to heat up in league play and most teams are now starting to look towards the postseason.

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.
