Class 1A Regional Volleyball Predictions

Class 1A Regional Volleyball Predictions

Here are my Predictions on who is going to win the 8 regionals taking place this weekend.  I will also give my 4 wildcards based on today (11/2/2021) RPI.  I will give a quick breakdown of why I am picking each team to win.

Region 1

Winner: Briggsdale

Briggsdale will be the favorite to win this region.  Briggsdale has 3 loses this season 2 of which were to a top team in Class 2A and the other was to Fleming who is a top 4 team in Class 1A.  Briggsdale will be tested by perennial power Kit Carson, but I expect Briggsdale to win this region.

Region 2

Winner: Fleming

Fleming did not get an easy draw as the #2 seed.  Fleming will face Springfield who is playing really well and La Veta who is a perennial power.  Fleming will be tested by I expect them to win this region.

Region 3

Winner: Haxtun

In many people minds Haxtun is the favorite to win the Class 1A title.  I also feel as if Haxtun got a really good draw in the region.  Haxtun, I think cruise into the State Tournament.

Region 4

Winner: Merino

Merino did not get any favors done when it was seeded in this region.  Merino has two teams who traditionally make it to the state tournament in Genoa-Hugo and Sangre De Cristo.  I think this will be a very tough region, but I think Merino still gets the win.

Region 5

Winner: Wiley

Wiley has just 2 loses this season to top 3 teams in Class 1A.  Wiley in my opinion has a very good draw but should still be tested by Weldon Valley who did win a set against Briggsdale.  Wiley should be happy with this draw and I believe advance to the State Tournament.

Region 6

Winner: Stratton

Stratton will be the favorite to advance from Region 6 but I think have two teams who will challenge for the region.  Belleview Christian and Otis are both solid teams and this should be a tough test for Stratton.  I think Stratton will get all it can handle but advance from this region.

Region 7

Winner: Flatirons Academy

Idalia is the higher seed at #7 but I think have toughest region.  Flatirons Academy and North Park are two very good teams.  I am picking the #10 seeded Flatirons Academy to win this region.  I could see any of the three teams in this region win.  Flatirons Academy I think is playing the best Volleyball in this region which is why I am picking them.

Region 8

Winner: Dove Creek

Another very tough region.  Cheraw is the #8 seed and joined by #9 Dove Creek, and #17 Simla.  Honestly, I believe any of the 3 teams can win this region and could come down to the tie breaker.  Cheraw would have been my pick a few weeks ago but since October they have not been the same.  I am picking Dove Creek to win this region, and this will be the most competitive of the 8 regionals.

Wild Card Teams

Belleview Christian, Cheraw, Idalia, Genoa-Hugo
