Regional & State Volleyball Projections Class 2A Week 8

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 2A

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.

League Champions ()=RPI

Black Forest League: Simla (8)

Frontier League: 3A team (2A team is in 4th place and must win league outright)

Lower Platte League: Wiggins (3)

Mile High League: Denver Christian (1)

Santa Fe League: Fowler (6)

San Juan League: Dolores (15)

Southern Peaks League: Sanford (14)

*Teams in mixed classifications must win their league outright in order to earn an automatic berth to regionals.
