In previous years, Austintown Fitch participated in the season-ending league tournament only. This year, the team advisor chose not to participate in either regular season matches or the tournament. Chaney withdrew their team from competition for the 2010 season.
Seeding was done in a unique fashion. At the end of the season, teams were put into Pots 1-4, depending on where they finished during the regular season. The top four teams in the first division were placed into Pot 1, while the next four teams in the same division were placed into Pot 2. Pot 3 was reserved for the top four teams in the second division, and the remaining teams were placed into Pot 4. In the tournament, teams from Pot 1 were chosen to play against teams in Pot 4, and teams from Pot 2 would play against teams in Pot 3. Since there were only fourteen teams, two of them received byes.
South Range was able to run through the entire Championship Bracket unscathed, with the closest match being a 330-280 victory over Boardman. The other three matches South Range won by an average margin of 280 points. On the other hand, Canfield won their first match against Western Reserve by a significant margin, but had lost the next round to Lowellville by a score of 155-175. Canfield was able to get revenge on Lowellville, however, in the final of the Elimination Bracket they defeated the Rockets by a score of 255-90. This set up the final match between South Range and Canfield.
