POLL TALK: In the final Ohio High School Water Polo rankings, both Milford squads were ranked ninth in the state, thus earning the No. 9 seed in the state tournament. The rankings are computed with a unique formula where teams earn two points for a winning record in a series against any Ohio team. If the series is tied, each team will earn one point. A team will earn zero points for a losing record in a series. The number of points is divided by the number of series played for an overall score. Games against non-Ohio teams do not count in the rankings but are reported in the overall record.
