Regional Tournament Projections Volleyball Class 1A Week 11
Final Week of the regular season! I cannot believe how quick the regular season has gone by. Regionals kick off on November 5/6. We will have are regional seeding released Nov 1st. What I am doing is releasing my last Regional Projections for all 3 classes today before Thursdays games. Good Luck to all teams fighting to reach regionals!
The Regional format for 1A goes as follows:
All League Champions will automatically earn a berth to regionals. The remaining teams (up to 24 for 1A and 36 for 2A & 3A) will be selected straight off the CHSAA RPI published at the end of the regular season. Teams will then be seeded based on the CHSAA Seeding Index (Composed of RPI, Maxpreps, and Coaches Poll). When Possible, Geography will be considered for number three seeds of each region. Team seeded #1 thru #8 will host. All Regional Winners will automatically earn a berth to the State Championships. 4 Wildcard teams will be selected after the completion of the Regionals Tournaments. Teams will be selected based on the CHSAA RPI Rankings published the Monday After Regionals. Teams must have participated in Regionals in order to be considered as a “Wild Card Team”. 8 Regional Winners plus 4 Wildcard Teams advance to State.
