Northview Chiefs No. 7 In State, No. 2 In Region

October 16, 2019

The Northview Chiefs have moved up to No. 2 in the region and No. 7 in the state in the latest 1A rankings released Tuesday by the Florida High School Athletic Association.

In Region 1-1A, the Chiefs are ranked one spot behind the Baker Gators, who defeated the Chiefs 14-12 on September 13. The Gators are ranked number one in the state in 1A.

Region 1-1A rankings are as follows (listed as school, RPI, record)

  1. Baker .698 (7-0)
  2. Northview  .605 (5-2)
  3. Freeport .598, (6-2)
  4. Vernon .597, (5-2)
  5. Graceville .541 (5-2)
  6. Jay .515 (3-4)
  7. Holmes County .443 (2-5)
  8. Cottondale .428 (2-5)
  9. Chipley .405 (1-6)

There are no districts in Class 1A. The top six teams in each district make the playoffs, with the top two receiving a bye in the first week.

Teams are ranked based upon a RPI formula. RPI stands for Ratings Percentage Index. In short, it is a way to measure a team’s strength relative to other teams, based largely on the strength of their schedules.

The Chiefs are off this Friday night, and will round out the regular season with away games at Chipley and Jay.
