Woodridge clinched the PTC crown last night. Been an absolutely dominant school year for Woodridge sports in the PTC. Football, Boys Soccer, Boys and Girls Cross, Basketball and Wrestling all won league championships and combined for 1 loss and 1 tie in league contests. You can throw 2 state championships into that mix as well.

Congrats to Woodridge. A very solid athletic program there. You set the standard for the entire league to follow. We have had some great games with your teams. I have nothing less then the utmost respect for your teams. I will now look forward to seeing you guys out on the track this spring. Great season, and good luck this post season.

IMO, Coventry is following the same path as Woodridge in developing their sports programs; which is a good model to follow. Build a solid middle school foundation, put some winning seasons together to build a winning attitude, get some conference titles under your belt, develop an expectation to win, then step up in class in competition to build some post season success. I'm not sure Woodridge is ready to make noise on a statewide basis in football or basketball just yet, but they are building toward that goal. As is Coventry. And the best way to maintain that ongoing success for school systems like Woodridge and like Coventry is to build through youth sports. You know, all the talk on these threads is about the competitive advantages built into the system for private schools. But the public schools who have sustained success are the ones who maximize the advantages they have over the private schools; most significant being the fact they have these kids in their programs from K-12! Successful HS programs give these youth participants a reason to stay.

Well said, Woodridge has done very well, 1 point separated the league champ this year, we shared the track title last year & should be fun again this year, congrats Woodridge

Most of what you say is true, the problem with Coventry is at the youth level. Their youth football and basketball is a trainwreck. I couldn't get my kid out of there fast enough.
I'm close with two people currently on the football board and it's ugly. The coaching and leadership stinks. Fixing that is where you start.
Kresowaty was the only youth coach worth a damn.

You clearly are more in the know there than I. And if what you say is true, then that should be the FIRST order of business to be addressed.

It's not true, many have enjoyed good years in our youth programs, we have won many championships in many sports, they have had few financial issues as a lot of programs have & they have corrected, I'm not in youth anymore but the 7th grade won the PTC over Woodridge this week & they are all 1st year kids out of youth, everyone is entitled to their opinion but I would strongly disagree, some of my kids best memories & friendships where built there

Perhaps you are right...we may need some housecleaning. Drain the swamp...Make Coventry great again. Where to begin...is the new AD somebody who can make necessary changes? I personally am a big fan of AD Danny Savage, as a Track and Cross Country guy. Curious how the other main sports people feel about his leadership. We need some outsiders without prior ties to the system, someone who can bring fresh ideas, fresh perspective. Danny Savage came from Hoover, taught Chemistry, became Track coach, revolutionized that team. DiFalco is one of Dambrot and Dru's Ilk, sounds like a good man to have coaching the Basketball team. Comets B&G, how much influence do these people have on the youth teams?

Edit; what do I know, I should just stick to what I know, and that is Cross Country and Track. Speaking of youth programs..... Hmmm. I wonder if a youth program could be established for those sports too... I better look into that. I know this is basketball forum, but I would love to have a state caliber cross country and track team.

Edit... Or perhaps B&G is right, and the system has improved in recent years. That could explain things, it seems like there is a lot more athleticism in the classes that came after my class of 2015 (with my class being the vanguard with Zack Lake), then the classes that came before.

There has been one of the strongest travel softball programs built in Coventry in Fury Fastpitch, a couple teachers/ volleyball coaches have started youth program for volleyball, I'm old but I see Coventry competing well over at least the next 5 years. Football, baseball & girls basketball is behind & needs improvement

I'm just concerned most about wrestling situation. All I know is our wrestling team finished last at PTC's this year. A complete embarrassment for a team that was once a perennial state contender 20 years ago. Would love to see that rebuilt.

Edit: I know this is Basketball forum, not other sports forum, but all the programs are connected in that successful program contributes to school culture of success. Which benefits other sports.

School handled that situation poorly, Shinn had varsity, JV & took any athlete that just wanted to workout to get better for other sports, we was always stronger than our competitors with Shinn, he is still doing great things for the kids that are willing to train with him on their own

Summit County Top 10

I would also say Zach was a great athlete, Hargrove may do special things at Pitt, unique size, was at game last night, looked about 6'7" 310 with no gut

And to get this back on summit top 10

1 St V
2 Hoban
3 Copley
4 Ellet
5 Coventry
6 Woodridge
7 Buchtel
8 Stow
9 Tallmadge
10 Kenmore

Zack is already doing great things for Broadus. Knew him well personally, as a fellow class of 2015 track guy. Tremendous class, work ethic, and respect for everyone. Was a great class we had. Zack, Bryce, Trevor Burkhart, Will Morisak, Andre Martin, Luke Bedford, Devon Jones, Mickey Duvall. Was proud to have been on a team with these tremendous athletes, and classy individuals. Our class with those guys, had special significance of being the class that made the track team great. But yeah, back on track.

I would probably move Buchtel up ahead of Coventry and Woodridge for the time being...Young squad will need to prove themselves over them in postseason.

Edit..dont get me wrong, it wouldn't be that huge of an upset if we beat Buchtel, but Id say they are favored. I'd give Buchtel a 75% chance of winning. And I'd give Coventry a 75-80% chance of beating Kenmore. Nate Silver had the chances of Hillary Clinton winning an election at 70-75%. Yeah.

You can't put Buchtel in front of Stow. Stow has the better record and beat them in January.

Coventry is rather iffy too. Copley might be underrated.

Well see. Satisfied with last year, got as far as we could, but well see what happens. Hoping we can give some good games. Best of luck to Ellet, think youll get past districts this year? I'll be pulling for the Orangemen.

Thread jack for the old timers in Summit County...

I recall a player from Akron who died on the court in the late 70's against Warren Harding. I believe he choked on his gum? I also recall he was a really good player. Does anyone else remember this and what his name was?

His name was Wayne Johnson. He played for Buchtel. The young man died on the floor in a game against Harding at the Warren Fieldhouse on 12/23/76 after colliding with a teammate in the backcourt.

Ummm..Nooooo.

Garfield 96' had the Ashburn twins, Jarmond Hogg, and Bobby Donohue. Zero PTC teams now could beat them, let alone then.

Thank you Irish. I found it thanks to the name search.

I'd have to know what year that was. I honestly can't believe North has beat anyone by 40 in the past ten years? Did Springfields whole team have the flu and they have to use the freshman team, even with that I'd like their chances.

Summit County Top 10

I would say I can only talk to what I have personally seen over the last couple years, Buchtel has competed for City Series Championship, either against Firestone or Ellet, Buchtel is in our district, we made it farther then them last year, Alliance beat Buchtel 68-55 in districts, (correction Sectional Finals) we beat Alliance 75-53 & again in District semifinal to send us to District championship
The year before Buchtel beat us in district Semifinal to go to District Championship by 2, it is part of the game & not an excuse but we was up by 10 pulling away when our big that Buchtel had no answer for got in foul trouble in 3rd & changed the game, again I'm not saying we win ACS every year, I say that over the last 3 years we compete for it
