COLUMBUS – After losing to St. Henry last week, the Versailles football team fell out of playoff position in the Ohio High School Athletic Association’s latest computer ratings release.

In the third weekly release of the 2015 season, Versailles fell from the No. 8 spot it occupied the past two weeks in Division V Region 18. The Tigers now are 11th in Region 18, which is outside of postseason-qualification position. The top eight teams in the region will make the playoffs.

Versailles is 3-3 through six weeks of the regular season. With games remaining against Coldwater, Marion Local and Fort Recovery – all of whom are undefeated and ranked in the top three of their regions – Versailles still has opportunities to climb back into playoff position, but it won’t be easy.

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.
