Regional/State Playoff Projections Volleyball Class 3A Week 9

We are in the final stretch of the regular season for Volleyball and things are starting to get sorted out.  We will see which teams can continue to rise and which teams fall back.  The RPI will still continue to change but look for the changes to not be as dramatic.

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.
