ThisWeek group

Week 2 of the ThisWeekSPORTS.com Predictions Panel ended with only six of the 13 panelists finishing with double-digit wins, led by Frank DiRenna, Jeff Stevenson and Jarrod Ulrey all going 11-4.

DiRenna, who also tied for the most wins in Week 1, leads the panel at 25-7 overall, two games ahead of Steve Blackledge, Lee Cochran, Scott Gerfen and Jeff Stevenson.

In Week 3, we have two unanimous picks with Dublin Coffman over Olentangy Orange and Westerville South beating Westerville North. Games splitting the staff 7-6 were Hartley at DeSales, Hilliard Darby at Olentangy Berlin and Amanda-Clearcreek at Bloom-Carroll.

As for our Lone Wolf picks, in which one staffer goes against the rest of the panel, we went 0-2 to drop to 0-3 for the season. Scott Hennen missed on his pick of Olentangy Berlin to beat Olentangy, and Cochran came up short in his pick of Olentangy Liberty to beat Dublin Coffman.

For the third consecutive week, Hennen has a Lone Wolf pick, taking Hilliard Bradley to beat Hilliard Davidson.

Enjoy Week 3!
