2/1/16 – Poll #5

  1. Lima Senior

Big week for the Spartans knocking off cross town rival Lima CC as well as St Francis and a pesky CCHS on their way to a 15-0 record.

  1. St. John’s

The Titan’s had a great week going 3-0 against Springfield, Whitmer, and a very strong Lakewood St Ed’s club. Senior Aaron Thompson had a big time week to lead SJJ.

  1. Rogers

The Rams continue to run through the City League again knocking off pre-season favorite Bowsher, though without Dalonte Brown.

  1. Whitmer

The Panthers showed little resistance this week in their only game vs St. John’s. There is a lot of talent and depth on Coach Brown’s roster. Look for a terrific re-match with CCHS this week.

  1. Napoleon

The NLL is currently the hottest league race in the area and Coach Good’s team remains on top of the standings. Anthony Wayne and Northview on deck this week.

  1. Northview

Got surprised by an up and down Springfield team with Rick UpChurch in the house. 2 must win home games this week for the Wildcats vs Perrysburg and Napoleon.

  1. Central Catholic

Tough week going 0-2 vs two very good ball clubs. The Irish are primed and ready for a big finish to this season.

  1. St. Francis

The Knights have a must win at home vs Findlay this week and then will host the Johnnies on Bancroft for the first time in 40+ years.

  1. Ottawa Hills

The Green Bears avenged their only loss of the year beating Toledo Christian by 10 to improve to 13-1 overall.

10a. Swanton

8 wins in a row for the Bulldogs but Swanton’s 2 games back in the NWOAL due to some early season league defeats.

10b. Southview

The Cougars have dropped 2 out of 3 but still sit only 1 game back in the NLL race with 5 games to go.

Can play their way in with two wins this week: Findlay and Scott.


Northern Buckeye (8), Northern Lakes League (8), Northwest Ohio (9), TRAC (8), Toledo Area, (8) Toledo City (6) – 47 total teams considered
