OHSAA has a credit hour standard which is absurd. If a kid is on schedule to graduate, they should be able to participate. I've had nearly as many top 10% kids not be able to participate as I have...

Would that be because the only one who ran a good/ smart race was the kid that won? Horrible strategies and tactics by everyone else. Is that what makes it the race of the day. The only race that was...

What if we invited every team to one giant invite? We could have the District meet be the prelims. Then, the regional meet could serve as the semis. The state meet would be...

A few trends I can't stand.

#1. Advancing to finals on time only. Winner + best times should go through. Winning should count for something.

#2 and this is even worse for me. We were at a...

I like the "Abby Steiner for instance" There are about none of us that can relate to that.

Injuries and Athletic trainers

It has gotten to a point where our athletic trainer determines workouts more than I do as a coach. Our CC kids seem to be able to get through a season without constant visits to the trainer. However,...

We have floated the idea of a Distance only meet.
