October 1, 2021. Additional RPI Information.
The WIAA updates the RPI rankings whenever a school from around the State has played a match. This new data can change MVC’s ranking.
RPI rankings are based on a school’s win-loss percentage, their opponents’ win-loss percentage and their opponents’ opponents win-loss record. If you are interested in the most current rankings from the WIAA for 1B/2B Boys’ Soccer, go to this site: https://www.wiaa.com/DIRRPIsoc.aspx?SPID=7
October 1, 2021. WIAA RPI Rankings Updated.
As of Friday evening, the WIAA’s RPI rankings have three District One schools in the top five. Undefeated Orcas Island is ranked number two, one-loss Providence Classical Christian is third, while MVC, with 5-3-0 record, is fifth. Crosspoint Academy from District Two is first. Rounding out the top five is Prescott, from eastern Washington, who is listed as the number four school.
Regardless rankings or seedings, schools from eastern Washington have found their way to the past six 1B/2B State Championship match, winning four State titles, including a 2019 win by St. George’s of Spokane. No State Tournament was held last fall because of Covid. MVC earned the State Championship trophy in 2014, when they went 22-0-0; the only time a school has gone undefeated in this classification.
Once the regular season ends in late October, district postseason tournaments will be held to determine the schools that qualify for the eight-team State tournament. The State Seeding Committee, using RPI and the “eye test”, will place/seed the eight teams onto the State bracket, where quarterfinal match-ups will take place either November 12 or 13 with the four winners advancing to the Final Four State 1B/2B Championships in Sumner, November 19 & 20.

September 2, 2021 Season Nears for Hurricanes. With just the Labor Day weekend remaining in front of the MVC Boys’ Soccer program before their opening match Tuesday, September 7 at home with Coupeville, Head Coach Jeremiah Wohlgemuth recently shared a few thoughts on the first two weeks of turnouts.
“The squad is rounding out nicely with three seniors, a slew of juniors, and a great balance of sophomores and freshmen. It’s looking to be a great season.”
Wohlgemuth said the program has thirty participants including two eighth graders. He anticipates twenty-eight being ready for the season. A series of Junior Varsity matches with at least three other schools have been scheduled to accommodate the large number.
On their turnouts thus far, Wohlgemuth commented, “We’re taking the first two weeks to bond, get co-fit, and to focus on the upcoming weeks.”
With a large number of returnees, MVC looks to be one of the top squads this Fall following an unusual Spring season, where the Hurricanes were 3-1-0 in league (4-2-0 overall) before seeing their schedule cut short because of Covid.
August 11, 2021 Anticipating the Upcoming Season. Head Coach Jeremiah Wohlgemuth shared these thoughts about the approaching Fall boys’ soccer season.
“August is upon us and with it the ‘no-contact’ period for our team. After a successful—but Covid-shortened spring season—we graduated three seniors and began preparing for what we hope to be a mostly-normal fall season. The increase in enrollment at MVC, along with a robust amount of returners from last season’s squad and the success we enjoyed, has us eager with anticipation for what the season will look like. We are set to begin on August 23 as we pursue a positive and successful season.”
