The Vikings continued their strong season on Monday at Wayne Webb’s Columbus Bowl by defeating Hamilton Township to win the County Line Cup. Jullian Cunningham was the match medalist with a 436 series.

The Vikings and Rangers play in dual matches for a “County Line Cup” trophy, presented to the winner. The Cup was created by the Rangers Coach Art Short, who created the cup for the matches (boys and girls, respectively). Coach Short and the Rangers are tough and have had an outstanding season. 

For the Vikings, Coach Erik Fischer has done an outstanding job of working with the young men this season. Under Fischer’s leadership, the boys have climbed the COHSBC, statistically speaking, during the season.

Sunday, October 30, 2022

The Ohio High School Athletic Association released figures on how each seed did in the first-round of the state football playoffs. This is the second consecutive season where the top 16 teams in each region have qualified for the postseason. Previously, just the top eight teams qualified per region, although the association had planned to expand that to 12 teams, per a recommendation from the state football coaches association. The OHSAA decided to go from 12 to 16 teams to provide additional participation and to recover lost revenue from the COVID-19 pandemic.

How the Seeds Fared in the First Round

Of note, the No. 9 and No. 10 seeds went a combined 31-25 playing on the road Friday in the first round of the playoffs. Overall, the home teams (top 8 seeds) went 178-46 in the first round.

No. 1 seed: 28-0

No. 2 seed: 27-1

No. 3 seed: 27-1

No. 4 seed: 21-7

No. 5 seed: 26-2

No. 6 seed: 24-4

No. 7 seed: 13-15

No. 8 seed: 12-16

No. 9 seed: 16-12 (played at No. 8 seed)

No. 10 seed: 15-13 (played at No. 7 seed)

No. 11 seed: 4-24 (played at No. 6 seed)

No. 12 seed: 2-26 (played at No. 5 seed)

No. 13 seed: 7-21 (played at No. 4 seed)

No. 14 seed: 1-27 (played at No. 3 seed)

No. 15 seed: 1-27 (played at No. 2 seed)

No. 16 seed: 0-28 (played at No. 1 seed)
