Tournament Brackets

The championship tournament for the 6th - 8th grades will start with pool play and then move to bracket play for the semi-final and championship rounds. The seeding was done by ranking the divisions first place teams in the 1 to 6 seeds, the second place teams in the 7 to 12 seeds and the top 4 third place teams in the 13 to 16 seeds. The seeding calculation process only uses divisional games.
