Second Look: 2017 1/2/3A Playoffs

By Damian Hall 04/24/2017

It has only been a few days since our early look at the 1/2/3A playoffs, but the playoff picture is becoming more clear and we have some new information. With just 5 competition days left, this week means everything

Below you can find the playoff breakdown as of 4/23/17. Conference leaders are marked in orange, but no ranking is implied in this listing. We will save that for later in the week when the picture clears up even more.

The Bubble

A few teams are still on the bubble. The first team out is Bishop McGuinnes. The Villians are 4-9 and have two games this week that could push them into the playoffs. Splitting their games would put them tied with the last four in. Winning both would most likely put them tied with W. Alamance, who does not have any scheduled games over the week after losing their conference tournament game to Page last week.

Major games

The last week of the public school season will not be without a fair share of big games. Several conferences have on-going tournaments that could affect the playoff landscape and/or seeding later in the week. We will update as we learn more about the way the championship games play out. There are some games as far out as Saturday, so the small-school playoffs won't be clear until then!
