Right, ENA. I'm not saying we should do what NY is doing or anything, and what works for them might not necessarily work best for us etc. But I did think it was interesting and worth noting that all...

I'm curious about what other states do so I spent some end-of-year time in my classroom putting a spreadsheet together. Then I found an article on MileSplit NY with information borrowed from a...

Four divisions is absolutely the real answer to this. The statistic you mention is staggering if you think about it, and it's not good for the kids or the sport.

The OHSAA doesn't like to change,...

He should coast to a fourth. Because he's in fourth. Because he will qualify based on place. Because the change we are discussing doesn't affect that.

It does affect the person who placed 5th in...

All of this is fine, but it doesn't address the competitive imbalance that exists among some of the regional meets, depending on the year. Hypothetically, if I run low 9's in the 3200 and place 5th...

Yes, I assume they will just be posted on the qualifiers list. I'm not sure how else they would indicate that. Unrealistic for them to contact individuals/schools probably.

There's no way to know...

I remember at a previous school I coached at I had a couple decent 800 runners whom I had seeded at current season PRs, which somehow put them in the slow heat (ugh, as it was the county meet). The...

Ha. I remember doing this when I was at Chardon as an assistant, and I've done it at every school I've coached at since. But you can't do it every day, lol.

I arrived early for DII/III so parking was not difficult for me, but it looked bad when I left.
