SW Regional Meet

For the first time since the regional concept was introduced in 1965, the DI regional meet is leaving Dayton's Welcome stadium and going to Huber Heights Wayne.
Another interesting fact is that DII and DIII meets are also leaving Welcome stadium and going to separate sites. DII will be at Piqua and DIII will be at Troy.

I hear it might have been because Dayton took out the discus area and made a bike park there.

True, but University of Dayton's track is right next door. UD has a full facility with college approved shot put, discus and hammer. Discus could've been at UD. I actually think it would've been a shorter walk than through a drug infested park.

The real reason is because of Dayton Public Schools relationship with Mark Baker the Athletic Director. OHSAA will not do business with Mark Baker.

Dayton public schools are on a probation for OHSAA violations and are not allowed to host events. Welcome stadium is a DPS facility.

DI may go back eventually but DII and DIII will likely never go back there for anything
