I get why you were stirring the pot. I pretty much agree too. I find it irritating to have coaches vote to put a team that ran one screaming fast course ahead of teams that have beaten them soundly....

Boardman, when itís not muddy, is a good, tough XC course. It is not a course for fast times, but (again, when itís not muddy) it isnít a course where the effort will hurt you the next week.

The course at Mason was really in pretty good shape all things considered. The mulch hill and the creek definitely slowed things down, but all in all it doesnít seem like it was anywhere near as slow...

Practicing before school is great if you can do it, but it is not an option for everyone or every school. We did a lot of optional practices in the morning last year for the kids with asthma and...

Thank you Rohbino. Every year I have to deal with at least one or two (this year four and counting) parents who tell me "I would never let my kid drink a sports drink, it's not natural." I try to...

The Olentangy Orange girls won at Pick North, beating Liberty, Thomas and Gahanna who are all still ranked ahead. Maybe only a few remembered to vote and most votes stayed the same.

I don't feel like the Mason meet gets narrow all that quickly. There is a right turn about 200 meters or so into the race, but there is plenty of space to take it wide and then there is a nice long...

Steiner runs a 23.23

Right now it looks like they want to use her to keep other teams pinned back a bit. But I agree. When she moved to right back for her club team she became really difficult for other teams to match up...

Ummm... even that 55 second 400 boy, if properly instructed, will run a tenth or two faster out of blocks. He will also be less likely the false start. Think about it. You would never tell a 55...

I completely agree with madman. Yes we encourage all of our 400 runners to use blocks. Even slower runners will be a little bit faster if they can start well out of the blocks. But at almost every...

They probably don't have enough parking to handle the central district meet. I was at the NCAA D3 regional race last year. There would probably be several times more spectators for the district meet....

No it does not have character like Watkins. It is tabletop flat and open. On the plus side it is a better course for watching. And there is a much lower likelihood of a terrain related injury.
