COLUMBUS – Tri-Village is just outside playoff qualification position, according to the first Ohio High School Athletic Association computer ratings release of the 2017 football season.

The OHSAA released its first set of weekly computer rankings this week with Tri-Village in a four-way tie for ninth place in Division VII Region 28 with Springfield Catholic Central, Cincinnati Miami Valley Christian Academy and New Bremen. The top eight teams in each region at the end of the season will qualify for the playoffs.

Ansonia, Arcanum, Bradford, Greenville, Mississinawa Valley and Versailles are not ranked in the top 12 of their regions. Thus they are out of playoff position and were not included in this week’s OHSAA computer ratings release.

The OHSAA computer points will be used to determine which football teams make the postseason following the conclusion of the regular season. Log on to the football page at OHSAA.org for an explanation of how the ratings are calculated.

The complete report showing all teams in every region is posted at http://www.ohsaa.org/Portals/0/Sports/Football/2017/Week4-Rankings.pdf.
