COLUMBUS – The Versailles football team is in line to make the Ohio High School Athletic Association playoffs, according to the computer ratings released by the OHSAA.

The OHSAA released its first set of weekly computer points this week, and Versailles checked in eighth in Division V Region 18. As the points stand through four weeks of the regular season, the Tigers would be the final team in their region to qualify for the playoffs and would play at Midwest Athletic Conference rival Coldwater – the defending Division V state champion – in the first week of the playoffs.

Versailles made the playoffs in Division VI last year. This year the Tigers, who are 3-1 through the first four weeks of the season, moved up to Division V.

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.

In the OHSAA system, Division I is split in two regions with 16 teams from both regions qualifying for the playoffs. Divisions II through VII are split into four regions each with the top eight teams in each region making the playoffs.

Ansonia, Arcanum, Bradford, Greenville and Mississinawa Valley 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.
