Some WPIAL tourney numbers

Here are a few numbers the WPIAL provided for us during last night's pairings meeting:

161: of 266 teams made the playoffs. For my fellow math nerds, that's 61 percent -- far to many in my opinion. More below.
2: teams that went undefeated overall (New Castle boys, Blackhawk girls)
20: teams that were undefeated in their section
36: first-time playoff entrants
125: teams returning after last year

Now, my turn. My column tomorrow will talk some about the amount of teams get in, broken down by classification. Here is a look at how the classifications faired:

Class AAAA boys: 16 of 31 teams, 52 percent
Class AAA boys: 22 of 35 teams, 63 percent
Class AA boys: 26 of 43 teams, 60 percent
Class A boys: 17 of 24 teams, 71 percent
Class AAAA girls: 18 of 29 teams, 62 percent
Class AAA girls: 20 of 35 teams, 57 percent
Class AA girls: 24 of 41 teams, 59 percent
Class A girls: 18 of 26 teams, 69 percent

Percentage making it
Class A boys -- 71 percent
Class A girls -- 69 percent
Class AAA boys -- 63 percent
Class AAAA girls -- 62 percent
Class AA boys -- 60 percent
Class AA girls -- 59 percent
Class AAA girls -- 57 percent
NBA -- 53 percent (16 of 30)
NHL -- 53 percent (16 of 30)
Class AAAA boys -- 52 percent
NFL -- 38 percent (12 of 32)
MLB -- 33 percent (10 of 30)
