Greenwood Benefits from Milwaukee South Turning Down Playoff Spot

The Greenwood Indians will be playing postseason football, after losing 41-0 to Gilman on Friday the Greenwood Indians looked to have a very long shot to get into the playoffs, but they will qualify after Milwaukee South, who qualified for the playoffs, turned down the spot.

This also had huge ramifications across the state, because Division 2 Milwaukee South was not in and Division 7 Greenwood was all the cutlines moved. The biggest change this had was on the cutline between Division 5 and Division 6 with Fond du Lac Saint Mary’s Springs, the defending Division 6 state champions, will be the smallest school in Division 5, a division that will also include Colby, Spencer/Columbus, Stratford, and the defending Division 5 State Champion Amherst.
