if Shawnee ever gets small enough to be in the D6 range, the OHC would jump all over that in a heartbeat.
Low 140s is about right since it included preschool in their count. Assuming 50/50 boy:girl ratio that narrowly gets you above the D4 cutoff line. If you have a couple classes where enrollment has a female tilt like currently they could sneak into D5 again.The 154 per class is actually a bit higher than actual Shawnee's count from 2018: 199 boys +231 girls = 430 total for grades 9 thru 11 is 143 kids per class. Assuming the 2,000 kids in the Shawnee school system is correct, it does not appear Shawnee will be Div VI in the foreseeable future.
You are correct. KR joined when they opened in 77 and then Northwestern shortly after that. The core of the league has been steady for quite some time with a few teams coming and going in between.jobarules, I would have to agree with you they aren't going anywhere. Correct me if I am wrong but Shawnee was one of the charter schools for the CBC. Bellefontaine, Northeastern, Greenon, Urbana and I forget the sixth one...maybe London?
I said if they dropped to D6, the OHC would be salivating. I don't think the CBC would want a school the size of Mechanicsburg in the conference. As long as they are teetering D4/D5, they would absolutely be staying put.Y'all are flying of the hinges here about Shawnee dropping divisions. First they are borderline D4/D5 now and let's not forget they added a division not too long ago or they'd be on the border of D3/D4. In other sports, they are still D2 with the majority of the CBC which takes me to my next point. There is no way the CBC shows them where the door is, they're not going anywhere haha
as this logically makes the most sense i don’t think northwestern could competeEven with Shawnee on DV cusp, does it make sense to keep them in the KT? Considering North Union and Indian Lake are DV, shouldn't Shawnee be in the MR as well? Then move Northwestern to the KT and that would give the MR 3 DIV and 3 DV schools while the KT would have 1 DII, 3 DIII and 2 DIV schools. Shawnee could play Belle and Tecumseh or NW and KR in the crossovers.
Kids going to GISA has no effect on athletics except for the competitive balance formula. GISA does not have any athletic programs and all of their students compete for their "home" schools.Shawnee is also losing a lot of kids to Global Impact STEM Academy. For the foreseeable future Shawnee will be a D4/5 school in FB. I don't see any chance of the KT kicking them out anytime soon. (partially because I don't think any of the MR schools would be willing to move up to take their place). As for next year I think the absolute ceiling is 7-3 and a playoff appearance but that is going to require a lot of things to go their way.
I am aware of this. My comment was more geared towards how Shawnee keeps dropping enrollment.Kids going to GISA has no effect on athletics except for the competitive balance formula. GISA does not have any athletic programs and all of their students compete for their "home" schools.
Back in the early 2000's these three schools seemed fairly competitive with each other and I think Greenon got the best of the other two. It was probably best ME left after the 05 season because Greenon and NW had some good teams and really good games against each other. I really like the NW vs. Greenon series, should always be a scheduled game.It looks to me like Arbiter has Greenon and Miami East on NW's schedule for week 2 and week 3 in 2021.
Eh Miami East has been by far the best of the 3 since they left the CBC. Competition in the CCC doesnt quite compete with the bigger CBC teams but Miami East has been nothing but successful. I think they beat Greenon and Northwestern 8 or 9 times out of 10 since leaving the league in 2005.Back in the early 2000's these three schools seemed fairly competitive with each other and I think Greenon got the best of the other two.

They didn't actually play, just my speculation on what would have happened. Warrior is correct that jumping when they did brought a rejuvenation to their team. In theory I'd love to see them back if a realignment were to happenI didn't now Greenon or NW played ME since ME they left the CBC...I apologize for stating Greenon got the best of the two, I'm working from memory that is failing me. I went back and looked at the records and ME was 3-2 against both Greenon and NW while in the CBC. Yes, ME did much better in the CCC but the 2006-2008 time frame for Greenon and NW was some of the best football those two schools had played in many, many years.
