Boys state basketball poll: Edgerton move to 11th

Published:

Edgerton moved back in the Associated Press boys state basketball ratings. The Bulldogs, 17th two weeks ago before falling out of the poll last week, are 11th in Division IV in the latest rankings.

Ottawa-Glandorf is the only other area team in the poll. The Titans are again third in Division III.

The top-ranked teams remained the same this week with Columbus Northland still on top in Division I, helped out by a win over Westerville North, which fell to fourth. Dayton Thurgood-Marshall is again first in D-II, Cincinnati Summit Country Day is tops in D-III, despite suffering its first loss of the season to Dayton Dunbar, and St. Henry leads in D-IV.
