2A Girls Regionals

With updated RPI standings from Saturday night, the 2A girls’ bracket is starting to take shape.  District champions have been crowned and those clubs will be seeded one through eight based on RPI standings.  Then again using RPI, teams are seeded nine through 32 to fill out the pairings.  Clubs in seeds nine through 24 are supposed to stay in place with those holding down the final seven seeds (25-32) possibly moved for travel considerations.  The committee will also likely move teams to avoid having teams from the same district or league pair up in the opening round.

We list the seed order below based on the most current RPI (Saturday at 9:20pm).  Please note these are not official pairings and only projected brackets from Colorado Preps.  RPI standings will be made official on Sunday and the pairings then released later in the day.

For our projections, we true seed the entire 32-team field with notes on where teams might be moved.  Please remember that the state tournament pairings will be reseeded once all eight teams qualify.

Region Eight

#8 Ignacio vs #25 Sanford

#9 Denver Christian vs #24 Lyons


Notes:  We can see movement involving Las Animas and either Dolores or Norwood. Las Animas is 29th and pitted for a trip to Rangely but the committee likely sends Norwood there and moves the Trojans to the Simla bracket.  Dolores could be swapped with Sargent sending Dolores to Del Norte and Sargent over to Simla.  The Farmers are currently paired with league rival Del Norte so the committee should move them.  Otherwise the bracket looks to be in great shape using straight RPI following the district champions.

  1. Seems logical to switch Burlington and Haxtun so they are not meeting conference opponents in 2nd round also. Have played those conference opponents twice this season already. Travel is easy as well.

  2. The RPI system isn’t perfect, but if the committee in charge of it will continue to have an open mind on how to tweak it to make it better, then I hope they keep that open mind. How does Team W beat Team H 3 times in a year and end up with a lower rpi ranking? In theory, Team H gets to play an easier (lower rpi) opponent.

    This year, the committee is ranking all the district winners based on rpi. Why not place all the second place teams (from the district tournament) on rpi? Then the third place teams and lastly the fourth place teams? (All based on the 2A format) 1A can use the same basis too. If a district winner has a weak rpi, they will face a much higher rpi team in their part of the bracket. CHSAA did set the standard of reward for winning your district.

    If you do use rpi to rank similiar placing teams from the district tournament, then teams don’t have to worry about playing schools that have a track record of really low rpi value.
