COLUMBUS – For a second consecutive week the Greenville softball team fell one spot in the Ohio High School Fastpitch Softball Coaches Association state rankings.

In the fourth poll of the season, Greenville fell from No. 6 to No. 7 in Division II. The seventh place ranking matches a season low for the Lady Wave, who also were ranked seventh in the first poll of the season.

Hebron Lakewood, LeGrange Keystone, Jonathon Alder, Oak Harbor and Kenton Ridge all remained ahead of Greenville while Jefferson Area bypassed the Lady Wave, moving from eighth to sixth in the Division II rankings.
