The fall sports tournaments are right around the corner.
As fellow Delaware Live sportswriter and I are adding up point indexes in football, soccer and volleyball, here’s what we think the football seedings would be if the state tournament starts today and a peek at soccer and volleyball.
Eight teams will start the Class 3A tournament and a look at their stats, with bonus points based on current records, makes us pick Dover as the top seed and hosting 8th seeded Appoquinimink.
Hodgson would be the second seed and host seventh seeded William Penn.
Middletown would be the third seed and host sixth seeded Sussex Central.
Sallies would be the fourth seed and host fifth seeded Cape Henlopen.
The Class 2A state tournament picture would have Caravel as top seed, hosting 8th seeded Laurel.
Howard would be the second seed and host seventh seeded Milford.
Friends would be the third seed and host sixth seeded Red Lion.
The fourth seed would be Woodbridge and they would host fifth seeded Tower Hill.
The Class 1A football state tournament would start with Brandywine as top seed, hosting eighth seeded St Elizabeth’s.
Polytech would be the second seed and host seventh seed St Andrew’s.
Tatnall would be the three seed and host sixth seeded Indian River.
Wilmington Charter would be the fourth seed and host fifth seeded Seaford.
The volleyball tournament would start with 24 teams, with a slew of bubble teams vying to be in it.
They are now sitting in the 18th thru 30th range and include — in no particular order — MOT Charter, DMA, Conrad, Sanford, Friends, Aspira, Odessa, Cape Henlopen, Delmarva Christian, Brandywine, Polytech, Hodgson, Red Lion and Sussex Central.
The soccer tournament will begin with eight teams in the Division 1 soccer field and 12 teams in the Division 2 soccer field.
The bubble teams in Division 1 now sit in the sixth to 12th range and include Appoquinimink, Polytech, Dover, Caesar Rodney, Sussex Tech, William Penn and Sussex Central.
The bubble teams in Division 2 sit in the ninth thru 18th position and include Tower Hill, Sanford, Archmere, Concord, Glasgow, Delmar, Woodbridge, Lake Forest, St Andrew’s and Hodgson.
We’ll have more next week, and we’ll all be able to see how one game could shake up the point indexes during the season.
