Galion is still alive in the OHSAA playoff hunt.


Last Friday’s win by the Galion football team over River Valley has kept the Tigers’ playoff hopes alive.

This week’s Ohio High School Athletic Association weekly football computer ratings has found Galion (5-2) in tenth place in Division V, Region 16. The top eight teams in the rankings make the playoffs.

According to several projections, Galion would need to win its final three games and get help from several teams above them to make the playoffs.

In Division VI, Region 20, two area teams appear likely to make the playoffs. Wynford is ranked first with a 6-1 record, while Colonel Crawford ranks third with a 6-1 record as well.

The Division V and VI rankings are shown below.
