Computer ratings at midway mark to postseason

Halfway home they have better than half a chance.

Four area teams are within striking distance of the top eight spots in the computer ratings midway through the season.

The top eight teams in each region of the six divisions qualify for the postseason.

The Ironton Fighting Tigers are No. 8 in Region 15 of Division IV with a 5.6280 average.

Also in Region 15, the Rock Hill Redmen (3-2) are 12th with a 4.0500 rating.

In Region 19 of Division V, the Coal Grove Hornets (3-2) are 13th with a 4.0500 rating. Wheelersburg (2-3) is tied for 14th place with Trimble, each sporting a 4.0000 average.

Green (3-2) is at No. 15 with a 2.9140 average, but the Bobcats could make a big jump this week with a win over South Gallia who is No. 8 in Region 23 of Division VI.
