I think Davidson has some room for something with Stull. She was a sub 4:50 runner in 2019 as a soph, then had no 2020 track season. She was hurt and missed most of the year and has now returned for the post-season and has been improving a little each week. A 4:50 talent racing into shape could pop something at any time. If she is their #1 or near #1 it could provide a boost that most schools do not have the poetential for. #3 at regional jumping to #1 could be enough in a tight field.D1 Girls
This is really hard to pick. There's not a dominant team this season. Centerville, Lakota East, Mason, Perrysburg, and Davidson will all contend for the top 3 spots. I can't make sense out of the Boardman region. Lakota East and Centerville seem like their 1-5 gap is too large. Mason runs a really tight pack but the 1 runner needs to move up a bit. They could be a surprise.
Individual - Spletzer of Lakota East or Duncan of Lebanon

That was a freak occurence. He broke it at the femur head so with a good surgeon, some pinning, and good rehab, he should make a good recovery. I believe he is only a sophomore so he'll be back. The kid from Bellefontaine showed great sportsmanship to help him get across the line even though it dq'd the Mason kid.Mason seems high to me.
They were 4th in their region by 46 points. I believe they were closer to Loveland than a top 5 state team.
Their #1 man broke his femur in the regional xc race. I believe there's a viral feed and video on social media about this. The guy was helped to the finish line by another competitor from another team.
Underdog Woodbridge somehow prevails!Wow, Woodridge boys ranked 3rd in the coaches poll overcomes and wins Boys D2 for a record 10th boys title. What a heart warming story of a team fighting against the odds. The underdog somehow pulling off the big upset.
Bay went from not being allowed to even participate in the season to 4th at the state meet. Gotta love that! Congrats.
Waynesville going to the 6th man to edge Unioto for second place and a podium spot. Outstanding.( I honestly looked at both after the Regionals and said to myself they are identical teams.) Top teams did not disappoint.
Ryan Champa ran a smart race to take first place.
Then the Girls race was just as good. Hats off to all the D2 teams.
I enjoyed the venue. The excessive number of video boards was nice.
Good day. Hot good day.
And had his best race of the season when it counted most which I think is a very good sign for a young guy.Sam Ricchiuti could be the next superstar of Ohio distance running. Only none senior in top ten with a 15:48, quite impressive for a freshman. What are the thought of anyone that has been able to watch him in person.
Save for a growth spurt, it looked like he had all the tools when I saw him winning the JH state meet last fall that was held on his home course.Sam Ricchiuti could be the next superstar of Ohio distance running. Only none senior in top ten with a 15:48, quite impressive for a freshman. What are the thought of anyone that has been able to watch him in person.
