The football playoff regional assignments were recently approved by the Ohio High School Athletic Association and its Board of Directors following the release of division assignments June 4.
Wauseon will once again compete in Division IV, Region 14. Swanton also stays in the same region, as the Bulldogs are in Division V, Region 18.
With Archbold moving back to Division VI, they join Delta and Evergreen in Region 23. Liberty Center also joins the region as they were in Division V in 2018.
In years past, local teams were in Region 22. This will make a playoff run much tougher as Region 23 also consists of Midwest Athletic Conference representatives, a league known for its football prowess.
The top eight in computer points in each region qualify for the playoffs.
