Mike Dyer of WCPO.COM and GMC Commissioner Steve Shuck further analyze the football playoff implications heading into week #9.  As usual, several playoff spots are in limbo and will be decided in these last two weeks of the regular season. Many of these "limbo" schools will find themselves in a "playoff or play-in atmosphere"  as programs compete for those all-decisive fractions of points that make all the difference in determining who is in and who is out.

For expert insiders take on how these final weeks shape up, see the link provided below:

The playoff plot certainly thickens! 

 

With the GMC Cross Country Championships barely in the "rear view mirror", the league programs begin the first step toward the coveted state championships by competing in the OHSAA Southwest District meet this Saturday morning at the Voice of America Metro Park in West Chester. The meet will feature two Division I boys races (1 and 2) and two Division I girls races (1 and 2).  The boys races are scheduled for 10:00 AM and 10:30 AM, while the girls races are set for 11:00 AM and 11:30 AM. Race assignments were the result of a seeding vote process by the participating head coaches.

The Middletown Middies will be competing in the Southwest District Tournament site based at Cedarville University. The girls will compete at 1:00 PM, while the boys run at 1:45 PM. Those results will also be found on Baumspage.com as indicated below, but under the Cedarville heading.

Admission for this OHSAA District Championship event is $6 for all spectators (including seniors, students and coaches/athletes not on authorized pass list).  There is no charge for parking at VOA.
