Section VI playoff picture is COMPLETE

Here's a class-by-class look at the Section VI playoff picture. We updated it throughout the weekend and now everything is all set. 

Section VI will announce times and sites for the playoff games Sunday, while it will also announce the matchups of the Chuck Funke Consolation Bowl Playoffs and any other additional games that will he played. We'll post that as soon as we can. 

The info below was put together based on the Section VI playoff procedures (starting on page 10 of the handbook) and from consultations with Section VI chairman Ken Stoldt.

The full standings are here (please note that the computer counted Lancaster's win over Niagara Falls twice, so their nonleague record erroneously has one more game than it should). All teams' scores this season are located below the standings.
