Only if you did the same thing for everybody else. Some of the teams listed ahead of St. Marys made it a few times when only 1 team per region qualified. Actually St. Marys did also, they lost to Elyria Catholic and Brookfield in 1977 & 78 respectively so they received the 1-point for qualifying and that's all in those two years.
As an example, four of Moeller's titles came when only 1 team qualified and those Moeller teams could have certainly won more than two games each season which is all they played to win a title from 1972-79. Obviously it was much more difficult to qualify then of course but the formula is what is. It comes from the Ohio High School Football Coaches Assoc. I just plug the numbers in.
If I were to pro-rate it I would make it worth more for qualifying in those years when only 1 or two teams made it.
