For the same reason RunnerAdam said, we get the track first. With over 200 athletes it just doesnít make sense to have our kids wait or come back later. We overlap our practices partially with girls...

I donít think that psychodad was commenting one way or another dual meets being good or bad. He was saying that OVTC does not have enough data to score the teams from the state meet in dual meet...

I was in Granville visiting my parents on the Thursday Nov. 1 and saw a bunch of the hand crafted signs. I am guessing maybe that the moving of the date (and the rain) may have interfered psychodad....

They would win the state meet with absolutely no trouble. Not that beating high school teams says that much, but they would win easily. Their performances at the Big Ten meet would all be mid to low...

Yes. My teamís strength this year is depth rather than from runners. Depending on the district this can be good or bad compared to the regional race. Last decade we had a year where our girls lost to...
