1. Vinton County Vikings | 9-2 (Conf. 5-1)

After a shocking loss to the Wellston Golden Rockets last Friday, the Vikings rebounded nicely with a win against McClain on Saturday. They will have back-to-back testing games this week, with their first coming against the Federal Hocking Lancers on Tuesday and then a rematch against Alexander on Friday.

After losing to Alexander last week, the Buckeyes are now in a tie with the Spartans for second in the TVC-Ohio. However, depending on how Alexander’s matchup goes with Vinton County on Friday, they will have a chance to break that tie with a win against River Valley on Friday.

The Spartans are coming alive in time for the stretch run, winning their last two games, both against TVC-Ohio opponents. After handily beating Nelsonville-York in their last game, they are preparing for a rematch against Vinton County on Friday.

Athens went one-and-two last week; however, their lone win was against Meigs. This win allows them to hold a share of fourth place with the surging Wellston Golden Rockets. The Bulldogs will not have an in-conference game this week, instead playing Marrietta on Tuesday.

The Golden Rockets are soaring. After a three-and-six start to the season, they have won three straight. Each of those wins came against TVC-Ohio opponents. Their last game was impressive, upsetting the conference-leading Vinton County Vikings. 

Wellston will look to keep that momentum going against Eastern and Meigs this week.
