There is no practical way to verify the number of meets for each athlete in the state. An entry and participation are not the same thing. Even participation would be almost impossible to verify. ...

I just watched the replay at milesplit. I am left wondering what happened to Kreft the last 800m. He has finished strong in every race I've seen of his before this one. Just got tired or something...

I'm not sure what the problem is with loops. I believe the IAAF mandates that 2000 meter loops be used for IAAF Championships. Boardman has been two loops for as long as I can remember.

Does anyone get decent reception at NTR? I have Verizon and the concept of being able to follow "live" results has been a poor joke.

Just looking at times, I would guess conditions were very similar to the State Championships, ~15 seconds slower than a typical "fast" course.

30-40 years ago it seems like many, if not most, high school XC courses were on golf courses. I can't think of a single one on a golf course now. Most courses aren't willing to close up shop and...

Ohio girls also take 4 of top 8 individual spots.

Note that top 5 individuals qualify for Nationals. Gigandet and Kreft just miss, taking 6th.

Big 10 XC

Nine teams put their 5th man in before Ohio State's 1st man crosses the line at the Big 10 Championship.

OSU Men's XC = Cleveland Browns?

3 St. Ignatius 149
4 Massillon...

Who knows if the coach from Columbus' wheel/technique is accurate? It almost certainly isn't, nor is anyone elses. I have no doubt that someone's wheel will measure it to be near 5000m.
