None of those schools are even close to a senior class bigger than Granville's whole school. They are a lot bigger. Gahanna and Liberty are about a bit more than two and a half times Granville's...

I don't think it's even close for me. I would absolutely take winning a state title over qualifying for NXN.

When we go to the district meet, we want to win, but in general we tell kids to focus...

And Clark has been a CPS school for quite a while now. How did you come to think it was a private school?

I completely agree about league/conference titles. You should always do your best on that day. Our kids want to run well there. This past Saturday was decidedly not a good day. And the kids, even the...

People can still be good at art and bad at art. Just like science. I agree that I would not want to run XC if we only ran five times a season. On the other hand, I would probably be fine with taking...

I agree that some of my XC kids would be happy with fewer races. My daughter might have run XC, and certainly would have stayed with swimming, if she could have just practiced. (On the other hand,...

I think psychodad makes a valid point, that kids need to race in order to learn how to race. Furthermore, kids want to run races and for most kids there will never be a regional or state meet...

I don't really think I believe they have underperformed at the OCC meet. Lancaster does well at the district meet because their coach generally makes good choices about which district to enter. (This...

I think this weekend it is likely that all of the discrepancy was the weather. Darby and Eisenhart , two very fast courses in general, were much slower this weekend compared to last year, and in...

That may well be. In the past when they were moving teams to different regionals (the last time we got rid of unbalanced regionals) there was some back and forth when the numbers were the same but...

The Darby course was also much slower than usual last weekend. Heat, humidity and the softer ground tended to make most courses slower last weekend than they normally are. Year to year comparisons...

I think the most likely explanation is that there were more teams that finished 5 last year at Dayton than in Cincinnati. There is a similar situation with Troy getting 6 girls teams qualifying in D1...

For the Central division I agree that Davidson should win, but think Marysville may sneak in for runner up. As for Coffman, we will need to see about a couple of health issues. Maybe we could be...

Heard back from Dale Gabor. The distribution is what we all thought it would be, with unbalanced regionals. Not the only/exactly four teams from each regional. Hopefully the OHSAA will update what is...

Yeah I think that it can't be that dumb, and the four teams qualify is boilerplate text that was accidentally used. But I emailed Dale Gabor for an answer.
