UPDATED:  Regional tournaments have concluded and RPI standings updated Sunday morning so the 1A state volleyball bracket continues to take shape.  First round matches at state are set for Thursday morning with the top four seeds earning first round byes.  The tournament, for the second straight year, is a double elimination format through the state semifinals.  Once the state semifinals are set, the bracket becomes single elimination.

Eight regional winners from Friday and Saturday have gained automatic entry into the state tournament.  Four more wildcards will be made official by CHSAA on Monday but with RPI standings unlikely to change before then, we believe the wildcards will be Briggsdale, South Baca, Springfield and Otis.  They are the four highest remaining clubs that qualified for but did not win a regional tournament.  Again those selections are unofficial and won’t become official until a release by CHSAA Monday morning.



  1. Merino
  2. Kit Carson
  3. Genoa Hugo
  4. Fleming
  5. La Veta
  6. Briggsdale
  7. South Baca
  8. Springfield
  9. Sangre De Cristo
  10. Otis
  11. Dove Creek
  12. Haxtun
  13. Wiley
  14. Cotopaxi
  15. Prairie
  16. Stratton/Liberty

Looking ahead to the state tournament, RPI standings will also be used to seed the bracket.  Utilizing these numbers, the bracket looks like this.  Teams are listed in bracket order.


  • #1 Merino – BYE
  • #8 Springfield vs #9 Sangre De Cristo
  • #4 Fleming – BYE
  • #5 La Veta vs #12 Wiley
  • #2 Kit Carson – BYE
  • #7 South Baca vs #10 Otis
  • #3 Genoa Hugo – BYE
  • #6 Briggsdale vs #11 Haxtun


Again this information is for projection purposes only and is the opinion of Colorado Preps.  Official brackets will be issued by CHSAA on Monday.
