NCHSAA publishes RPI ranking
The NCHSAA released the season’s first edition of RPI odds for soccer, men’s soccer and volleyball.
RPI ratings are used this season to determine the state playoff standings at the end of the season. RPI uses a formula that combines the winning percentage of a team, the winning percentage of the team’s opponents, and the winning percentage of the opponents of the team’s opponents. The formula is: RPI = (0.3 x WP) + (0.4 x OWP) + (0.3 x OOWP).
Since Scotland are in a 4A / 3A split conference, the top ranked team in each classification will win an automatic playoff bid.
Scottish football’s RPI ranking is No.7 in 3A East, with an overall RPI rating of 0.597. Volleyball’s RPI ranking is # 11 in 3A Est, with an overall RPI rating of 0.587. Finally, men’s football has an RPI ranking of No.43 in the 3A East with an RPI ranking of 0.357.
