(WNFL) - Two-hundred-10 Wisconsin high school football teams will begin their quests for a state championship tonight, when the W-I-A-A playoffs begin. Fourteen others will have their post-season openers tomorrow. As usual, there are 32 teams in each of seven divisions. This weekend's winners will advance to the Level-Two games next Friday and Saturday. The two survivors in each division will square off at the state finals November 21st and 22nd at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison. All seven defending champions from a year ago are returning in the same divisions. That's not always the case, since all 224 teams are placed top-to-bottom each year in accordance with their enrollments. The list is then sliced into seven equal groupings, and the pairings go from there. Hartland Arrowhead is the returning champ in Division-One. The other titlists are Mequon Homestead in D-Two, Waukesha Catholic Memorial in Three, Somerset in Four, Amherst in Five, Fond du Lac Springs in Six, and Glenwood City in Division-Seven. Throughout the season, the A-P ranked teams in three enrollment groups, not knowing which divisions they would end up in. Mequon Homestead was Number-One among the large schools. Waupaca was tops in the medium group, and Fond du Lac Springs led the small schools.
