I haven't snooped around too much, but I've been wondering about McD boys. Really thought they would go run the table all season. This sport is such a crapshoot sometimes. Makes it fun, but you feel...

It'll be interesting to see Wooster in the fight for that spot. Doug is such a good motivator but they have a few really young varsity runners with a lot on their shoulders. I'll be pulling for them....

Yeah, it's shaping up to be tight at the top, and I'm sure Coach Sternberg knows his group is running as the favorites (even if not super-dominant favorites), which is a hard thing to manage...

McDonald made sure they weren't BIG winners. Look for McDonald to take a state title in 2018. When I saw them at Regionals last year as the first team that didn't make it out, and saw how young they...

I also like Tuslaw, especially on the girls side. They ran at our little mid-week meet back in early September, and they struck me as a well-disciplined, deliberate team that had clear goals in mind.

If the changes were made to make the course faster, I don't think they were successful. I've never felt Boardman to be a fast course, and today was no different. The heat is going to be tough, which...

I can't imagine how a Warrior Dash or a Spartan Race could be confused with a cross country race. Terrain isn't the only issue, I would argue.

Not having read the bylaws for all the other sports,...

Jackson beat St. Iggy at Glenoak. They looked great. 15:56-16:47 1-5 spread. That's impressive.

St. Iggy was 16:10-16:52 1-5. Also impressive.

51 seconds v. 52 seconds.
