Intermountain Christian grabbed the top spot followed by Rich, Monument Valley, Panguitch and Escalante rounding out the top five.
Green River is coming off of a straight set loss to Monticello last week, the week before they had back to back wins against Pinnacle and Whitehorse. Green River holds a 5-6 record overall and 2-1 league mark. Up next is a non-region road contest with Bryce Valley. They return home to face Whitehorse on Friday at 3:15.
The Panthers are coming off a striaght set loss at the hands of Bryce Valley. Sitting at 2-9 and 0-1 in league play, Pinnacle has been struggling late losing their last six contests. They will look to turn things around on Thursday when they face Monticello in Price at 6:45.
The RPI standings are determined by three statistically categories:
*MWP (Modified Winning Percentage): Divide the number of possible points by the number of total available points from games played accounting for the adjustment between classifications.
*OWP (Opponents Winning Percentage): Average of the winning percentage of a team’s opponent.
*OOWP (Opponents’ Opponents Winning Percentage): Same process as OWP except the calculation is with the opponents of the team’s opponent.
Below are the complete RPI rankings:
