Normally, a 15-4 team would garner one of the top seeds in a bracket.
But this isn’t a normal season.
With three teams ranked in the top 10 of the state by the Associated Press — Fairland, Unioto and Sheridan — which doesn’t even include defending district champion Warren, the upcoming Division II Southeast District tournament is deep in terms of quality with 11 double-digit win schools.
Circleville (15-4) was seeded eighth on Sunday by the district coaches in Division II, grabbing the final seed to host a sectional final. The Tigers are slated to host ninth-seeded Waverly (12-6) on Feb. 16 at 7 p.m.
The winner will likely advance to a district semifinal against top-seeded Fairland (18-0) at either Piketon or Logan high schools on Feb. 20.
Logan Elm (4-17) was seeded 14th and gets the task of traveling to defending state runner-up and third-seeded Sheridan (16-2) on Feb. 16 at 7 p.m. for its sectional final.
In Division III, Westfall (5-15) was seeded 26th and will travel to 23rd seeded Wellston (6-12) on Feb. 15 at 7 p.m. for a sectional final. The winner then travels to second-seeded Portsmouth West (19-1) for a sectional final on Feb. 18 at 1 p.m.
Mid-State League Buckeye Division co-leader Teays Valley (14-6) was seeded 14th out of 44 schools for the Division I tournament and is slated to host 24th seeded Hilliard Bradley (8-9) on Feb. 15 at 7 p.m. for a sectional semifinal.
If the Vikings were to advance, they would host 23rd seeded Chillicothe (13-5) on Feb. 18 at 1 p.m. for a sectional final.
Amanda-Clearcreek (11-9) was seeded seventh out of 26 schools in Division III and is slated to host Columbus School for Girls (10-8) on Feb. 14 at 7 p.m. in a sectional semifinal.
