MC ahead in region standings, but behind in latest RPI rankings

LOGAN – After Friday’s games came to a close, the updated Region 11 standings do not match the latest RPI standings released by the Utah High School Activities Association over the weekend. The biggest difference is that Mountain Crest is in second place in region standings, but is the third ranked team from the region in RPI standings. Green Canyon remains the #3 team overall in RPI despite trailing Mountain Crest in region standings.

Sky View leads all schools in Region 11 in both record (the only undefeated school in region play) and RPI (ranked #2 overall in 4A). The Utah 4A playoffs begin the weekend of Oct. 25-26 and the top 10 schools in the final RPI rankings will get a first round bye.
