I am not trying to create a big hub-bub and mish-mosh to this thread about having the sate meet in Canton. I am just looking for the objective facts. It is not clear to most people.
My understanding is that there is a long term contract in place with the OHSAA and Branin Natatorium. I believe that that there is something like 8 years left in the contract. As you can imagine, this is always a hot topic at this time of year. It is best to just hope for some great times this week at the District level and some great racing next week in Canton.

Not all that historic. For years the meet was held in Columbus at OSU. It moved to Canton in 1976 when that natatorium was state of the art and OSU's had become outdated.

Correct the OHSAA has 8 or so years left on a 10 year contract. The rental amounts have never been disclosed publicly to my knowledge. However, the OHSAA has claimed seating capacity as the reason to stay in Canton as Branin holds 2500 spectators with deck space for swimmers. And the coziness does create a marvelous atmosphere, although now that D2 swims separately the need for all the seats is not as great.

Anyway until the contract is finished it's a mute point. And although there has been discussion about the need for a better pool on this and other forums in the past, within the high school swimming community surprisingly, it has never seemed to be a major issue. You would think that the SW which always has the most swimmers in the meet would advocate for a site that is geographically closer to them. And logic would seem to suggest that you would want to swim the biggest (and fastest) high school meet in the fastest pool.

Interesting. UA & Jerome were significantly stronger at the sectionals than projected while SC dropped alot. Wonder if that will continue.

I wouldn't read to much into SC's sectional performance. Traditionally SC drops alot of time for the district meet. Expect them to score significantly higher - 40 to 50 points. If nowhere else their relays will finish much higher. If you look at their sectional relay lineups they were not stacked. In the past SC has often not even stacked their relays in the district meet. This year they better or they risk not getting their relays to move on...in fact, even stacked it's not a guarantee.

The real excitement this year in the team race is to see who finishes third. That will depend on who hits their taper as a team. The breast, back & fly should all be great races with anywhere from 3 to 5 swimmers in contention to win. And the fewer automatics may work out for a faster meet as with the exception of Joey Long, not sure anyone else is assured of moving on without a full taper .

Good predictions on most, but I have a few thoughts. I think that Whitaker in the 50 was a shaved time and as a freshman he will get out raced by the move motivated seniors like New Albany's Honeycutt. I am also going to add my home team favorite Harper in both the IM and breast. Harper was 1:58 in the IM last year and can outpace Trace for third and I think that he will replace Reardon in breast for third as well. I also don't think that there is any way that Depietro is going to lose back to Trace. Same guys, different order.
