MSA Sports Top Ten – WPIAL Softball Playoff Teams – 05/06/2015

Every Tuesday during the regular season, MSA Sports ranks the Top 10 WPIAL softball teams in each classification. For our final rankings this spring though, we will slot all 61 district softball postseason bound squads with 12 in AAAA, 17 in AAA, 17 in AA and 15 in A. As is the case in all of our playoff rankings, its more of a seeding than true ranking as we follow the WPIAL rules in an effort to avoid teams from the same section playing each other.

There will be FOUR First Round bye’s in Quad-A and ONE in Single-A. In both Triple-A and Double-A, there are 17 teams thus there will be one Preliminary Round contest in each of those two classes.

To figure out our First Round projected matchups, use the bracket formula of 1 vs 16, 2 vs 15, 3 vs 14, 4 vs 12, 5 vs 12, 6 vs 11, 7 vs 10 and 8 vs 9.

Don’t forget the WPIAL Softball Playoff Pairings Show is Thursday at 7:00pm followed by exclusive coverage of the 2015 WPIAL Softball Playoffs sponsored by Carlow University starting next week here on the MSA Sports Network.
