Using information from two websites (joeeitel.com and fantastic50.net), here is what the post-season looks like for the SBAAC.
Div III Region 12: Western Brown is in and assured of two home games with a win in Week 11 with the most likely seeding No. 2 behind Hamilton Badin. Wilmington is in and seeded anywhere from 9-14. New Richmond also is in with a chance at a home game in Week 11 if things fall right. Most likely first round matches are Wilmington at Wapakoneta, New Richmond at Monroe and Mount Healthy at Western Brown.
Div IV Region 16: Clinton-Massie hasn’t yet been guaranteed a post-season berth but the Falcons are good to go with a win over Wilmington. In fact, CM could get as high as a 6 seed if things fall right. One site has Bethel-Tate out, another has the Tigers still with hope.
Div V Region 20: Blanchester is in and not much is likely change win or lose Friday at East Clinton. The Wildcats can host a game either way, with a most likely first round matchup against Purcell-Marian. East Clinton must win against Blanchester to have a shot, but have not been eliminated. Clermont Northeastern is clinging to the playoffs, but even a win over Williamsburg this week won’t assure the Rockets of Week 11.
Div VI Region 24: Williamsburg is in with a chance still at hosting two games, with a win in Week 11. The most likely scenario for WHS is hosting Deer Park in the first round. WHS could finish as high as a No. 2 seed in the region, which would be huge.
