The top 16 teams in each region advance to the post-season. Here is an unofficial look at each SBAAC team.
DIV3 REGION11: Western Brown is second behind unbeaten Granville. The Broncos could have made a major jump by beating Clinton-Massie last week.
As it is, WB appears in good shape for a first round home game and maybe two.
Wilmington is 22nd and will need to score an upset over either Western Brown or Clinton-Massie in the final two weeks to make the playoffs.
DIV3 REGION 12: New Richmond is 21st and Goshen is 27. Both teams on the outside looking in for the post-season at this time.
DIV4 REGION16: Clinton-Massie is fifth, Bethel-Tate sixth and Batavia 22nd. The Falcons and Tigers should be in no problem, but seeding is important. Both need to win-out to secure a home game in the opener. Massie could really move up with Western Brown wins out.
DIV5 REGION20: Williamsburg is 12th, East Clinton 14th, Blanchester 15th, Clermont Northeastern 19th. If any of the three win their final three, they are in. WHS and BHS both have Bethel-Tate. A win there and the Wildcat teams jump up. Unfortunately for the county, the BHS-EC game in Week 10 may be for one post-season berth.
DIV7 REGION 28: Fayetteville is ninth. For their sake, wins the next two weeks might alleviate a must-win game in Week 10 against Bethel-Tate.
