Power Ranking System
METHOD OF SEEDING / POWER RATING SYSTEM
(All schools on your schedule are included in your calculations)
WIN POINTS — 5 points for each win.
TIE POINTS — 2.5 points for each tie.
SCHEDULE POINTS — winning percentage of each opponent on your schedule X 5.
BONUS POINTS — the winning percentage of the team that your team defeated X 12 and the winning percentage of the team that your team tied X 6.
The power ranking is determined by dividing the sum of all the win points, tie points, schedule points, and bonus points by the number of games that you played.
It is strongly recommended that you play all 18 games. All games should be completed by the day prior to the seeding meeting.
Tournament winners follow the bracket. Teams are not re-seeded as the tournament advances.
Note: All regular season contests must be completed before the start of the Seed meeting.
Post-season games for non-District One opponents can count towards the team's overall records. However, District One school's Post-Season League Playoff and Championship games do not count towards the power ranking system.
Final Rankings are Unofficial until 12:00 the day after the Seed Meeting
