The Mechanicsburg Indians are ranked 5th in the Division VI Associated Press poll released this week. Kirtland is ranked 1st followed by perennial state power Marion Local in 2nd, Patrick Henry comes in at 3rd, with Cuyahoga Heights at 4th. The AP poll is released each week during the regular season.
The Indians are currently ranked 3rd in the Division VI Region 24 computer rankings. The top 8 teams in each region move on to the playoffs with the top 4 teams hosting first round games. West Liberty-Salem is currently ranked 10th in the region. The Indians will host the Tigers this Friday in a matchup that has huge playoff implications. A win by Mechanicsburg almost assures them of a first round playoff game and dwindles the playoff hopes for West Liberty-Salem. A Tiger victory gives them a large amount of computer points and keep their playoff hopes alive.
