Apparently, you can tell your won-loss record to take a back seat on the postseason tournament ride.

Strength of schedule and how a team fared against that schedule carried more weight in most of the tournaments featuring boys basketball teams from Summit, Stark and Portage counties.

That’s the way it should be, but you might have a hard time convincing the snubbed programs.

The results of tournament voting for seeding purposes — done online — and the brackets were released Sunday by the Northeast District Athletic Board.

St. Vincent-St. Mary, Jackson, Buchtel, Revere and Waterloo earned top-seeded spots in their respective tournaments, but the win-loss records of many schools were ignored.

The biggest apparent snubs took place in the Division I tournament based at the Canton Civic Center — where Jackson understandably was voted the top seed — and in the Division III tourney at Garfield Heights involving Crestwood.

The coaches in Canton were not impressed with Dover’s 16-2 record and seeded the Tornadoes sixth behind Jackson (14-3), Green (13-3), Boardman (14-3), Hoover (12-5) and Perry (11-8).

Area schools receiving a cold shoulder of sorts included Twinsburg in the Solon Division I tournament, Woodridge in the Stow Division II tournament and Rootstown in the Salem Division III tourney.

Here’s what the computer spit out on Sunday:

BARBERTON DIVISION I

St. V-M, competing as a big school for the first time, will seek the program’s ninth state title after being voted the top seed. The Irish have won more state championships than anyone in Ohio. Copley (12-3), Archbishop Hoban (11-3) and Ellet (11-6) grabbed the next four spots. After a first-round bye, St. V-M will play host to either eighth-seeded Highland (7-10) or Firestone (7-12) on March 2.

Copley and Hoban are in the same half-bracket and, if things go according to plan, they will meet in the district semifinals on March 7. No snubs here.

CANTON DIVISION I (CIVIC CENTER)

As expected after its victory at Green on Friday and clinching at least a share of a fifth consecutive Federal League title and eighth in the last 10 years, Jackson (15-3) received the top seed. The Polar Bears drew a first-round bye and will host either eighth-seeded McKinley (8-9) or ninth-seeded GlenOak (8-8) — both Fed League members — on March 2.

Dover’s 16 wins are the most in the 13-team field, but if it wins its tourney opener against Massillon (6-9) it must win at Boardman (14-3) for a sectional title.

SOLON DIVISION I

Twinsburg’s 12 victories are the most in the field but were only good enough for a fourth seed, which is probably understandable as Shaker Heights (11-5), Euclid (11-5) and Garfield Heights (9-8) are the top three seeds in order. The good news is the Tigers drew a bye and will play a home game against the winner between fifth-seeded Warren Harding (11-8) and 12th-seeded Cleveland John Adams (7-8).

CANTON DIVISION II (FIELDHOUSE)

Buchtel (12-7) received 10 of the possible 13 first-place votes to easily earn the top seed and a first-round bye. Louisville (11-6), Northwest (13-5) and Alliance (10-8) were next in order. The Griffins will play at home on March 1 against either Marlington (9-8) or Manchester (8-9).

DIVISION II STOW

Woodridge has more victories than anyone in the 13-team field but the Bulldogs (15-4) received a fourth seed. Coach Ric Blevins said he wasn’t upset after being seeded behind Revere (13-3), Gilmour Academy (12-3) and Cleveland Benedictine (8-9).

“I have more of a problem with the system,” he said. “I liked it better when you went face-to-face in a meeting and voted. But, I truly feel any of the four teams that get to Stow have a puncher’s chance of getting out.”

Revere has put together a solid season and probably deserved the top seed, so don’t be surprised to see the Minutemen in the district final on March 9.

GARFIELD HEIGHTS DIVISION III

You would have a hard time convincing Crestwood coach Josh Jakacki that his 13-3 team is not better than a sixth seed.

“It is what it is,” he said. “We were moved from the Warren tournament to Garfield Heights, where we have no affiliation with any of the other teams. If we were in Warren or Salem we’d be a top-3 seed, for sure. Lutheran East (10-6) is the best team in the field, no question, but how many of its players are home grown?”

SALEM DIVISION III 

Waterloo (14-3) edged Canfield South Range (12-6) by one point for the top-seeded spot. The big surprise, however, was Canton Central Catholic (9-6) earning the third seed when six teams had superior records.
