Because then you would have 65 DII boys teams competing at regionals around the state. Only 64 make regionals which has been the case for years. How those 64 regional spots are distributed is based on what percentage of full teams compete in each District. The NE has a slightly larger share of the state's total pie of DII girls teams, so they get 1 more team to regionals than the DII boys.What I never could understand is why the girls D2 at Boardman has 20 teams but boys have 19?? We couldn't have just made them both 20??
AFAIK, you'll seed via baumspage just like they do for the basketball tournament. You'll seed all teams in your division at your site. Your seed will ultimately determine which race you end up in, so there won't be an in-person meeting.Do we have any idea how the seeding will be done? I have received nothing from the NEDAB or the OHSAA indicating how this will take place.
ENA, know you've been to LCCC many times in the past, but for others... There are only 10 boxes currently painted on the starting line. With some effort, it can be stretched to accommodate 13 with the CoVid rules... but that's it. Any more, and you are in the weeds. Hence the need for 2 races.....or their starting line isn't wide enough for social distancing (6' between boxes). Will LCC run two races, then combined results?... The more we find out, the less we know.
180 probably wouldn't be enough for the DI races at Boardman. They're slated to have 24 teams competing, so that's potentially 168-175 runners right there plus any individuals. Last year, the DI boys race at Boardman had 24 teams and 196 runners, and the DI girls race had 24 teams and 189 runners. I would imagine it is a very strong possibility that DI would have to be contested as 2 races at Boardman in order to comply with any guidelines set forth by the local Health Dept. If the number stays at 150, then DII might also have to be contested as 2 races at Boardman. DIII at Tiffin is another one that sticks out to me as presenting a possible numbers issue.Ohsaa has applied for a waiver from the state government to allow 180 per race at state. Hopefully it gets approved. The regionals have done the same thing with their local health dept. so we will see why they say.
Luckily, it appears DII is not seeding any of its races.How does this voting process work? Who picks when? I tried to read into it but got lost quickly.
