Volleyball RPI standings have been updated as of 4:20am Sunday morning, we can update our potential wildcards and state tournament pairings for Class 1A.
Eight regional champions have automatically earned a trip to the state tournament and those clubs are listed in bold. Wildcard selections will be made based on the highest ranked teams in the RPI that did not win a regional crown.
Please note these numbers are completely unofficial and wildcards won’t be announced by CHSAA until Monday morning. Until then, everything is just projection on our part.
CLASS 1A RPI (Unofficial)
- Kit Carson
- La Veta
- Flagler/Hi Plains
- Sangre De Cristo
- Genoa Hugo
- Weldon Valley
- Rocky Mountain Lutheran
- Cheyenne Wells
- Belleview Christian
- Dove Creek
Using these numbers, it appears that McClave, Wiley, Briggsdale and Holly have the best chances for a wildcard selection. The RPI though will likely be tabulated again tonight or tomorrow so these are simple projections and NOT OFFICIAL.
We can also look at how the state tournament bracket could be laid out; again using RPI numbers.
|Pool A||Pool B||Pool C||Pool D|
|#1 Kit Carson||#2 Fleming||#3 La Veta||#4 McClave|
|#8 Briggsdale||#7 Springfield||#6 Wiley||#5 Otis|
|#12 Weldon Valley||#11 Genoa Hugo||#10 Sangre De Cristo||#9 Holly|
Changes involve Briggsdale and Holly as the Falcons moved ahead of the Wildcats in new RPI standings posted on Sunday. That means they also changed positions in the bracket with Briggsdale moving to the 8th seed and Holly dropping to 9th.
For semifinals, Pool A would pair with Pool D and then the winners of Pool B and C would also collide.
Again, we stress this is all for projection purposes and not official. CHSAA will release official state tournament pairings on Monday once RPI standings are finalized and wildcard selections made.
