Region 6 possible tiebreaker

Region 6 seems like an impossible situation and could take the District 10 Committee most of its meeting on Sunday to figure out. Here is a possible solution for seeding. When looking at Franklin, Sharon, Meadville and Hickory, the committee could designate the second seed to the team that did the best against the other three. Here is each team’s record against the other three:

Hickory 4-2
Franklin 3-3
Sharon 3-3
Meadville 2-4

If Hickory gets the 2 seed and Meadville is in the No. 5 slot, we still need to break Franklin and Sharon up. The two teams split this season so it would be up to the D-10 Committee to decide the third and fourth seeds.

Another question is if five teams are in from Region 6, do you have a play-in round or only take three teams from Region 7? Harbor Creek and Girard are tied for fourth place in Region 7. Maybe two play-in games on Tuesday is the way to go. Have Girard and Harbor Creek play with the winner taking on Grove City and have Meadville play either Franklin or Sharon and the winner gets General McLane.

There are still numerous questions in other classes as well but nothing will be decided until Sunday afternoon.
