PLAYOFF OUTLOOK

 

Here is a look at the District 2 playoff standings. Again, District 2 is using a Power Rating system to determine its playoff teams.

 

 

 

TOURNAMENT INFORMATION:

 

  • Class A and Class 2A: There are 6 Class 1A schools and 6 Class 2A schools in
    District 2. All teams in each classification will qualify for the District Tournament. Seeding will be done using the new power rating system.

 

  • Class 3A: There are 13 District 2 teams and 1 team from District 4 (Shamokin). Of the 14 teams forming the sub-region, the top eight teams will qualify for the AAA tournament as well as any other team that finishes with a .500 record or
    above. Seeding will be determined by the new power rating system.

 

  • Class 4A: Since we only have 3 4A schools, our teams must qualify for the state tournament by forming a sub-region with District XI. There are 18 schools forming this sub-region. The top 10 teams in this sub-region will qualify as well as
    any team that finishes with a .500 or above league record, or of their totaled scheduled games, regardless of ranking will also be eligible.
