New Playoff Seeding Procedure!


Here is a step by step description of the ranking process:

1. Only best of 5 matches are to be included; abbreviated matches, such as those played in tournaments, are to be excluded.

2. Only best of 5 matches with PIAA schools are to be included ; matches with non-PIAA schools are to be excluded.

3. District one teams that play matches with PIAA teams that are outside of District One, are responsible for obtaining end of season win/loss records of those opponents to have them included in the ranking calculation.

4. The ranking calculation weighs two factors; a team’s season win/loss record, and the pre-district playoff win/loss records of that team’s PIAA opponents (as defined in steps 1-3).

5. An index will be calculated  using  55% of a team’s own win/loss record (% matches won/total matches played), added to 45%  of the combined win/loss records of its opponents.  This formula is designed to reward teams that play competitive schedules.

6. Each District One team will be ranked for district playoffs using the 55/45 index, with the team with the highest total index ranked first, the team with the second highest index ranked second, and so on until all available seeds are determined.
