Absolutely spot on.
Because little Johnny, little Sally or school who never got this far doesn't get to achieve a once in a lifetime dream of playing in a Regional or making it to Columbus.
Maybe next year?? Sheesh.
Completely agree. I actually think they know already but want to position it where it isn't complete shock and awe right now and that they feel it won't be/feel as bad several weeks down the road when they announce its completely shut down. Just my opinion of course.
I respectfully disagree as there are three teams in that district which have advanced to regional play and beyond multiple times in the last 5 years alone. Lake Catholic a few years back went to Canton, Lutheran East was in Columbus the last few years in D3 and VASJ last was was in Columbus in...
I would go so far as saying the #2 team out of Ashtabula AND perhaps Stow would win the Boardman District. No disrespect meant but it speaks to the tougher Cleveland area districts (in all divisions I might add).
Joe's will be fine. They have had way more "up" years than "down" ones. I believe there are a great number of programs and coaches in the state that would take what they've produced historically. FWIW I'm not a VASJ shill. Just respect what they have accomplished.
