Miami East does not have tennis, bowling, or mens volleyball. It does have swimming which consists mostly of girls but I believe they had a few more boys this past season than in previous seasons.

There have been attempts to begin the sport at some of the schools represented in this thread, but track and baseball coaches have put pressure on AD's and school boards to keep volleyball out. Many of the best potential volleyball players are also involved in AAU basketball in the spring.

As baseball dies out, I look for other fan friendly sports such as volleyball to one day be supported on a large scale, but we are likely twenty years away from the end of baseball,or more.
Now that's funny. Up in MAC land, baseball is as loved as football. The idea of someone throwing out a sport like boys volleyball or lacrosse (A sport I do enjoy watching) is like someone trying to introduce boys soccer in the fall. Its just not going to happen. But if suburbia enjoys it then good for them! Maybe Celina will get it. Anyhow, this isn't the forum for that. Back to the WithOut Any Championships!

As a baseball guy, from a baseball town, I have to call BS on that.

I want to say Celina had a boys club VB team for a time in the not so distant past.

D4fan - I don't see volleyball being a spectator sport. I could watch it when my daughters were playing. But I find it boring, and judging from the butts in the stands, I think most people agree. Even with boys playing, I am not feeling it. Plus some of these small schools struggle to field a decent baseball or track team. Diluting the talent even more would make them even less competitive in all spring sports.

But I can see baseball fading in a few decades. It is slow paced. Not enough action for young folks. I was a big baseball fan years ago, now I just have casual interest. I recall a stat that I saw several years ago that of the major sports it was baseball had the oldest fans. No surprise basketball had the youngest. When most of the folks watching your sport have gray hair, there is a problem.

You might be interested in knowing that there once was a TV station in Canton with the call letters WOAC. When it signed on in 1982 it took on something practically unheard of: a Scoreboard show Friday evenings at 10:30 during football season. It even televised football and basketball tournament games on a live basis. The station disappeared about 15 years later.

That could be a sign of the future of this conference.

Guess you never know, when Bethel left the Three Rivers Conference township residents were assured this was just a stop off until a better fit could be found. Turns out it was a good fit (CCC).

I spoke with an official of one of the conference yet to be named schools this weekend and they mentioned at least one of the eight schools may be only two years away from not having numbers for football.

Seems like this has became a constant theme with many schools unable to keep interest up in football.

I think it is a constant theme, and I hope it doesn't get to the point to where that particular school can not field a football team. The new WOAC will have a couple schools that will constantly be battling that as well. Miss. Valley and Bradford seem to be on the fence every year about having a program.

I can't find a citation right now, but if memory serves, Tri-Village had a boys volleyball team back in the 90's. Can anyone corroborate this? I'll have to do some research. I might have to search the newspaper archives instead of the web.

They did, into the early 2000s. I can't really offer much info, outside of the fact that it existed. A few of them went to U of Findlay, and during that time, the high school hosted an exhibition match between Findlay and Ohio State.

With all the talk of the conference changes pretty clear cut, and the talk calming down. We still have 2 years of football for the old CCC. What is the outlook for this next year? I expect the usual suspects to be at the top of the league... Fort Loramie, Covington and Miami East. Fort Loramie has to be the heavy favorite to win the league. I know Miami East loses a great Senior class, so I expect them to be down some, but still be good. The rest of the league will probably fall in as usual.

Fort Loramie starts the season with Minster and St. Henry. After that I expect them to breeze through the CCC with relative ease. Covington and East being the only teams that can compete with them.

I do believe that Covington returns a bunch of players, I just don't think they will be able to beat Fort Loramie. I think Covington will be the 2nd best team in the league this year.

yes, Covington looks like they return a solid class of Juniors....Loramie lost probably as good as group of Seniors as Loramie has ever had. Just watch what those boys do as they finish their Baseball careers.....

Tcn will be hard pressed to win 3 games and I think I'm being nice. The schedule is brutal and they have a new coach so the rebuild is in place.

Who is the new coach for TCN? I never heard a name announced.

He was the offensive coordinator at Fenwick is all I know. They have no size and very few skill players so it is going to be a tough couple seasons ahead for TCN.

With two seasons left with all of the CCC schools together, I would anticipate those 4 teams absolutely blowing the doors off of the schools that outed them. Canít say I blame them much either. Expect no mercy.

I was thinking the same thing, but wouldn't that just give the 10 an I told you so excuse for the split? In the end this wasn't the kids decision and it shouldn't be taken out on them. It could get nasty but for every football game there is a baseball game that the table could be turned on (except FL). Cov & Bethel are bad baseball teams and could be ran up if wanted. ME is middle of the pack, I hope the coaches of our young men act like adults, change happens in life. It's how you respond to it that determines the outcome.

Yeah, I don't buy the "blowing the doors off the schools that outed them" thing. I recently heard that Miami East had been inquiring with other schools about trying to find a new conference before all of this even went down. People can still make a big deal that this is all about football if they want (which isn't true), but this is clearly a good move for all the schools involved.

Completely agree with you. It is in the best interest of all schools involved to allow the shrinking or at least stable communities who are no longer participating in community growth to protect their interest by separating from the larger and more growth oriented schools.

While school pride may be an issue, I do not expect the girls softball coaches will be out to dominate the schools who decided to pull away from Bethel and Miami East. Is it your understanding Covington would have been permitted to join the other 10 schools?

I have a few pretty good sources at Miami East and Bethel that I talk with regularly, and there really is not much drama about the situation, but there is a lot of anticipation about the new conference and the advantages it will bring. Are there negatives? Sure, but every change has its own set of problems. So far looks like all players involved are acting like adults.
