Playoff Projections: We will track these following week 3
 
Division Winner 1: Abington/North Penn/Council Rock South
Wild Card 4: LaSalle
Division Winner 2: Abington/North Penn/Council Rock South
Wild Card 3: Upper Dublin
Division Winner 3:  Abington/North Penn/Council Rock South 
Wild Card 2: Council Rock South B
Division Winner 4: Lower Moreland
Wild Card 1:  Germantown Academy
 Explained: There is no way to break the 3 way tie between NP, CRS, and ASHS. Lower Moreland has their division right now on Boards won. 
Explained: GA and CRSB have two wins. They would be next in line. Then there are a bunch of teams with one win. All divisional tiebreak would be ignored and we go to boards won. 
Playoffs:

Division winners will be decided by the following tiebreaks: Total team wins (record). Head to Head record. Total Boards from the season. 
The Four divisional winners will then be ranked by: Total team wins (record). Then total boards won from the season. 
Wildcards may come from any division and are not necessarily distributed from specific divisions. Wildcards will be first granted on total team wins (record). Then total team boards from the season. 
Notes: Teams may not play another team for the THIRD time in the Quarterfinals or Semifinal. If they are scheduled to play, we will move the wildcard or traveling team down one slot to avoid this match-up. In the event that the 1/8 matchup is the one that needs tiebreaking, we will move up the 8 seed to 7. 
Also Note: If teams are scheduled to play in the Quarterfinals and are an hour away from each other by google maps, we will break this pairing in the same way as above.
