Girls state basketball poll: Archbold moves up to No. 2

Published:

Archbold moved up to second in the Associated Press girls Division III state basketball ratings.

The Blue Streaks, ranked fourth a week ago, passed Columbus Africentric and Gates Mills Gilmour in the poll and now trail only top-ranked Smithville.

Ottoville is again first in Division IV in the ratings while Patrick Henry, which suffered its first defeat of the year last Thursday against NWOAL rival Archbold, dropped from fourth to sixth in the D-IV poll.

Twinsburg in Division I and Millersburg West Holmes in Division II join Smithville and Ottoville as the top-ranked teams in this week's poll.
