Girls state basketball poll: Archbold up to second in Division III

Published:

Archbold moved up to second in the latest Associated Press Division III Ohio high school girls basketball ratings.

The Blue Streaks, third a week ago, passed Liberty-Benton after the Eagles fell to Lima Bath last week. L-B, which also lost to Miller City on Tuesday, slipped to fifth in the rankings.

Ottoville remained a runaway leader in Division IV while Reynoldsburg in Division I and Anna in Division III are again rated number one. Akron Manchester is the new Division II top-ranked team, one point ahead of Dayton Carroll, which suffered its first defeat of the season last week to fall behind Manchester.
