Will XC happen this fall?

Then why did the OHSAA neglect to make that distinction when they announced the May 26 lifting of the no-contact period last week? Notwithstanding future guidance to the contrary, a track coach will be able to host voluntary runs for track athletes at, say, a local public park beginning next Tuesday.
This is the exact way I understand it. Still would be limited to groups of 10.

Our AD was to the understanding the aforementioned non-contact OHSAA and city/traveling team sports were allowed to participate May 26th. Due to the confusion whether the governor’s office intended that to be OHSAA sports, the local AD’s agreed to all start at the same time and wait for further clarification. They cited that the lieutenant governor and OHSAA were working together on this. Hopefully, clarification occurs this week.

I think we need to get a lawyer involved. (Mathking, That made me actually laugh out loud)
Psychodad, it was funny to me too, but it would have been funnier happening to someone else. When I was told by a parent that my canceling the season was problematic, I honestly thought it was sarcasm at first. Then I realized it wasn’t. (I once had a parent complain that I would not change the date of the FIRST Robotics world championships because their kid had a conflict. So maybe It’s just that I am unreasonable?)

With NCAA football and basketball workouts starting June 1st on Campus at UC, X, OSU, OU etc...I can not imagine any reason not to have high school sports especially as the younger they are the safer they are.

He originally posted this..."The OHSAA has reversed course and now all sports are again under the no contact period till June 30th or until the health departments open up schools. Also it sounds like again, one for all and all for one. If one county is shut down the whole state shuts down, in regards to high school sports."

This is from a link in the article I posted...Adjustment to the OHSAA’s No-Contact Period – Limited Sports Since Governor DeWine announced yesterday in his “Responsible Restart Ohio” plan that certain sports will be permitted to begin on May 26, it becomes necessary to provide school coaches the opportunities. Effective May 26, the OHSAA’s No-Contact Period will be lifted for the following sports: • Baseball* • Golf • Softball* • Swimming & Diving • Tennis • Track & Field
According to the timeline, gatornation is saying the AD meeting with the NE Board rep took place after the release mentioned in the article you linked. Also, the article you've posted claims the release regarding the non-contact period being lifted on May 26 was released to the public. I saw a copy of the actual release. It was sent to the administrators at the OHSAA member schools and explicitly stated that it would not be released to the public. You will not find the release on the OHSAA's website at this time.

Lt Governor Husted today said May 26th skills training for OHSAA sports can start for all sports.

He said - Will get back to you on competition.

Back to the original question: I bet Cross-Country happens this Fall, and I bet it will be essentially the same as last year.

To put things in perspective, the lockdown started roughly 2 months ago. The beginning of the official Cross-Country season is 3 months away.

This week they have turned the stay-at-home order into a recommendation. Businesses are opening-up. You can eat at restaurants again. It sounds like we might even be able to have practices next week!
Everything is trending in the right direction, and pretty quickly, relative to where we were just a few weeks ago.

Plus, there is more and more pressure to open up. You have declining rates all across the country. You have other states that have opened up even more than Ohio has yet (GA, TN, others) and are not seeing huge spikes in cases. You have more and more people becoming aggravated at the state (right or wrong) to open up more every day. And there are certainly economic incentives for everyone to resume work and play.

I think it's very realistic to imagine that in 3 months we will be having Cross-Country meets here in Ohio. I bet there won't even be serious restrictions on meets, or school for that matter, in 3 months.

All my personal, humble opinion.

Im starting to think the same way. Dewine every day this week when he spoke was singling out the vulnerable (+65, preexisting health conditions) to stay at home. For the first time he wasn't lumping every single Ohioian in the guidelines. The young and healthy are not being affected by this right now as bad as the others. However, this is not flu season and can change pretty quickly in the fall.

I also am starting to believe that schools will begin as normal (maybe with some restrictions and guidelines) and in person.

God I said I was done with speculating and projecting but I just can't help myself.

The next month is going to be very important for everything. This weekend will be huge. Things have already gone poorly in North Carolina. We need to hope that things go well here in Ohio, because it's not looking good nationally. Have to get to the point that they will even have school before sports are even a consideration.

NC is looking really good based on what is on their dashboard. Death trending way down and like rest of country 60% from nursing homes.

If North Carolina is anything like Ohio, many of the cases and deaths they are reporting are backdated. What this means is that the deaths reported in Ohio today did not necessarily happen today. They could have happened two weeks ago. But that they are reported today. What that also means, is that we will not really have any idea what the true number of people that died today for another couple of weeks. Not saying your wrong. Just saying that if North Carolina is reporting their cases and deaths like Ohio, that the data for the last week or two is likely incomplete.

It would be nice if the actual cause of death was covid and they didn't die because they already had terminal cancer, chronic heart issues or were morbidly obese, all at the same time. This new issue with kids is actually an old issue they see every year at this time. But we cannot let facts get in the way of a good story. Last stat I read showed it was at least 98% had a substantial underlying medical issue (the other 2% are probably not telling the truth or didn't know they had an issue). Something like 1/2 the people listed never had a test to confirm, you could just speculate.

As many have said, let's protect the vulnerable until we develop heard immunity instead of creating a police state, or maybe that's the goal, not sure as I type this.
 
Morbidly obese are vulnerable? , will somebody please get Donny Bone Spurs a vaccine at warp speed, before this hoax
causes us all to live in a police state

Im sure the data is being misrepresented both ways. either way, I will not delve in speculation or worse, conspiracy theories. I prefer having actual hard data to work with. Is the data perfect? No, but it is all we have to work with. I can only hope then, that with time, the discrepancies will see the light of day.

People. Stop responding to Running Man's comments. He hasn't talked sports for close to three weeks and his conspiracy rants are terrible.

Orange man very bad. It didn't start as a hoax, but it sure is ending like one. No ACTUAL data to show anything we have done has "moved the curve", but orange man still bad.

Let's string it out as long as possible, then maybe we can make the man made climate change sponsors into gods as well. All this stuff is based on models, all hail the modelers. Orange man still bad, he will destroy everything!

All we have managed to do is demonstrate the power of crying wolf. The other thing that is hard to fathom is that the communists in China are looking out for everyone else in the world, at least according to everything I read. They are sooo much better than the other communists that have killed more people than all wars in world history combined, by an order of magnitude. How do they do it I wonder?

When XC starts I'll talk about it. We can talk about how fast the Darby track course is because it's short...
BTW, what conspiracy? Name just one...I have proof for everything I say, probably way more accurate than anything in the NY Times, but similar to the Financial Times. I'm skeptical of everything, all the time. People lie. All people. Liberals just dream bigger with their lies, which annoys me more.
