Wapakoneta drops out of poll after 2 appearances

From staff reports

The Wapakoneta Redskins dropped out of the Associated Press poll in Monday’s version of the weekly ranking of Ohio high school football teams, voted upon by media members.

Monday’s poll was the penultimate one of the 2013 season, as the final version will be released next Monday following the conclusion of the regular season by week’s end.

Teams receiving at least 12 points appear in the poll after the voting.

The Redskins (8-1) won their seventh straight game Friday after scoring a season-high in points with a 61-20 win over the Van Wert Cougars (0-9).

Wapak was ranked in Division III in the poll for two straight weeks starting Oct. 14 before dropping out of Monday’s edition.

The Redskins were 16th with 15 points the first time they were ranked and were tied for 18th with 17 points the second time they were ranked.

Wapak’s lone loss came to the Kenton Wildcats (9-0), who clinched at least a share of the Western Buckeye League title Friday.

Kenton was ranked first in Division IV in Monday’s poll.

The Marion Local Flyers (9-0) of the Midwest Athletic Conference were ranked first in Division VII.
With wins in their respective games Friday, both Kenton and Marion Local will likely clinch the top spot in their divisions to earn AP poll titles.
