Wildcats have time to move up in Harbin rankings

Harrison has some work to do if it wants to return to the Ohio High School Athletic Association football playoffs. The OHSAA released its second Harbin computer ratings last week (annually done after the fourth week of games), and the Wildcats were 15th in Division II, Region 8. The top eight schools in each region qualify for the postseason. Harrison was 13th after week four, before its 42-35 loss to Edgewood. The Wildcats, at 2-3, averaged 5.1 Harbin points per game. Eighth-place Winton Woods averaged 7.95.

The top eight teams in Division II, Region 8 – 1, Kings (4-1), 13; 2, La Salle (4-1) 11.0182; 3, Little Miami (5-0) 10.7; 4, Dublin Scioto (4- 1), 9.6; 5, Edgewood (5-0), 9.5; 6, Troy (4-1), 8.85; 7, Chillicothe (4-1), 8.45; 8, Winton Woods (4-1), 7.95. The Wildcats’ first four opponents were a combined 19-7 (Vandalia Butler 3-2, East Central 5-1, Anderson 4-1, Ross 2-3 and Edgewood 5-0). The remaining five opponents, including last Friday’s opponent, Talawanda, were 12-14 (Talawanda 2-3, Little Miami 5-0, Franklin County 2-4, Mount Healthy 2-3 and Northwest 1-4). Under the Harbin system, teams get a certain number of points for each victory, depending on the divisional rank of the opponent. Wins over a Division I school are worth 6.5 points; Division II, 6.0; Division III, 5.5; Division IV, 5.0; Division V, 4.5; Division VI, 4.0, and Division VII, 3.5.
