COLUMBUS — Two area football teams continued to rise in the third weekly Associated Press high school football state poll, released Monday night.

In Division V, Edison (4-1) is up two spots from 15th to No. 13 in this week’s poll. The Chargers (4-1) are coming off a 39-16 win vs. Willard, and will open up SBC Bay division play this week at Port Clinton.

Edison debuted at No. 16 in the initial Sept. 11 poll.

In Div. VII, St. Paul (5-0) is up two spots from sixth to No. 4. The Flyers had no trouble winning their 34th straight Firelands Conference game last week vs. Plymouth (42-0), but have a big game this Friday at Ashland Crestview (3-2).

St. Paul opened at No. 7 in the first of three polls, which will run through Oct. 23.

Also from the area, Clyde (5-0) is third and Sandusky (5-0) is fifth in the Div. III poll, while Shelby (5-0) is eighth in Div. IV.


St. Paul No. 2 in state coaches poll

The flip-flopping between Midwest Athletic Conference stalwart New Bremen and Firelands Conference power St. Paul continued in the Div. IV Ohio High School Volleyball Coaches Association poll on Monday.

Last week, the Lady Flyers (11-0) inched past New Bremen (13-1) for the No. 1 ranking. However, this week, the Cardinals took over the top spot again with 400 points to St. Paul’s 390 — despite the Lady Flyers finishing with 24 first-place votes to New Bremen’s 16.

Also from the area, unbeaten Oak Harbor (16-0) received two first-place votes and is ranked seventh in Div. II, while Huron (8-5) is No. 13 in Div. III.


Three area teams in OATCCC poll

The area has three teams ranked in the third weekly Ohio Association of Track-Cross Country Coaches poll, released on Monday.

In Div. II boys, Edison checks in at No. 15, while New London is 13th in Div. III. In Div. III girls, Western Reserve has debuted in the poll at No. 20.
