I still contend that Cloverleaf girls is being underrated at the LCCC District and will give Bay and Hathaway Brown all they can Handle. 7 quality teams for 6 spots. If anyone from any of the teams does not run well, they could be staying home as a team. None of the other Districts are even close to this level of competition.

Yeah, that's my bad. I was looking at CVC's list of six and had it in my head that there was one less spot then teams that he had. I added a 7th team and type 6 by mistake. 7 quality teams for 5 spots. (Funny thing is I did it again. I had to correct it here before hitting return. Typed 6 instead of 5)

Thank you very much Bill, Pyschodad I'm still taken back by the East teams shifted to LCCC. If I was a D3 girls' team I would be praying to go to Trumbull

Boy's D2

Lorain(5)

Rocky River(2) they have the single digit front runners and strength in the back

Bay(8) they also are a complete deep team but, so far they can't cover RR man to man

Woodridge (5)the defending champions. Are as much better team then most expecting. I'm just waiting for some Howard magic come regional time.

Fairview. (14)I like this team. They can sneak up on you like a shot of bourbon in your morning tea. They have a good number one and solid but not great in the rear

CVCA finished right behind Fairview Park at Spartan. But since then they have been missing the middle of their line up. I hope they are ready buy. Saturday

Triway they had no problem beating CVCA at Malone....they will be a shoe in CVCA doesn’t come around. In fact...I think they will beat CVCA ..because their runners may have been on the shelf too long...


Madison (5) there are 6 or 7 teams here that don’t have a pray of advancing

NDCL (7)the Lions can almost run this race like a glorified tempo run...and still advance

Jefferson, this team is probably the most improved boy’s team in the region

Lake Catholic. It’s good to see them back in D2....

Orange I, watched the Lions train all summer...the hard work is really paying off

Perry, another team which as stayed solid all season

Benedictine I would love for the Bengals to finish fifth here. But, they will really have to earn it.



Trumbull (5)

Seminary have shown to be the best here and they have raced like it

Salem ..boy they seem so promising at Boardman...and now they look like champions after their conference meet

South Range they are usually the bridesmaid and never the bride...that changes right here and now

No, Berkshire is the team I’m going with..they just won the CVC....no still Seminary and Salem

Hawken, just because I. Know a few of the guys and I used to be a proud Hawken parent

Wickliffe I, so much want them to succeed


Glen Oak (4)

In the words of Pyschodad $V$M whom else

Tuslaw (18)They have been flying a little under the radar

Garfield just because they will only be scoring four runners

Fairless 13th at Legends counts for something

Does anyone know how the north coast league meet turned out. I can’t find any results on line or in the newspaper. Like division winners or top couple of finishers. I know Seymour of SJA won the girl’s overall I think ...

Garfield boys go to Trumbull, not GlenOak. Also, I have no idea if it will affect any particular team, but I noticed that all NE District DII and DIII boys soccer 2nd round games are scheduled for 3pm on Saturday. Some XC teams that share athletes could be missing a key contributor or 2.

My picks for DIII boys at GlenOak
1. East Canton - I think they have enough to win it all at NTR.
2. Rootstown - Not great up front but very deep compared to everyone but EC.
3. Norwayne - If they put 3 or 4 in the 18s, it'll be more than enough to be 3rd here.
4. Canton CC - Good, bad, or ugly, they always manage to overcome inconsistency to advance to regionals.
Other teams with a chance to qualify would be East Palestine whose top 3 could make it interesting and United who beat Canton CC early in the season. Admittedly, this is a pretty weak draw after the top 2 teams.

Individual Winner: Snellenberger, East Canton


My picks for DIII girls at GlenOak:
1. Black River - A reliable frontrunner and enough quality behind her should lead the Pirates to some not-so-buried treasure.
2. East Canton - The Hornets always make a good showing at the district meet.
3. Canton CC - Much like the boys, the Lady Crusaders always find a way to advance to the regional. I'm going with my gut on this one.
4. East Palestine - They have beaten Lutheran West a few times this season including what was essentially a dual meet at the Malone Invite on this district course.
There are 6 teams here battling for 4 spots. St. Thomas Aquinas and Lutheran West are also very capable of advancing with good team performances. LW has an excellent frontrunner who could give their team a much-needed cushion over EC and CCC, but LW also needs big runs from the back half of their varsity. LW has the added bonus of a championship head coach as does St. Thomas Aquinas. My concerns regarding St. Thomas Aquinas relate to whether or not their team is healthy right now. I have a feeling that 1 of their top 2 runners is done for the season with an injury. The other has not finished a race since Saturday Night Lights and may not have even started these past 2 weeks. Their #3 also suffered a DNF at the Stark County Meet 2+ weeks ago. If 2 of their top 3 race and finish, I think they would advance.

Individual Winner: Groppe, Lutheran West


My picks for boys DII at GlenOak:
1. St. V-M - Clearly the best of the bench.
2. Tuslaw - Lacking some depth due to various things (injuries and whatnot) but still plenty good enough to beat all but St. V-M.
3. Fairless - A shaky 5th, but I like what their 2-4 runners did on Tuslaw's challenging course at the PAC-7 Meet.
4. Chippewa - It'll be tight with Lutheran West and Coventry, but I'm putting all my chips on the Chipps.

Individual Winner: Schultz, Black River


My picks for DII girls at GlenOak:
1. St. V-M - Same story as the boys.
2. Marlington - The Lady Dukes' (are they the Duchesses?) team performances have been all over the place this season. They didn't have a great day at the NBC meet, so I expect them to run well this week. They usually perform well at the district.
3. Hoban - The Knights are a newcomer to the DII Malone/GlenOak district, so they might be easy to overlook.
4. Tuslaw - They won't "wow" you from afar, but they work their way through the field and get the job done.
5. Fairless - After qualifying for state last fall, injuries have plagued this team. They still have enough to advance to regionals.
Spots 2-5 could finish in a different sequence, but these are the 5 teams that should qualify. The other teams are a few steps behind.

Individual Winner: Pumneo, Fairless


My picks for boys DI at GlenOak:
1. Jackson - Too much speed and depth.
2. GlenOak - Great pack but not enough speed to challenge Jackson.
3. and 4. Lake and Hoover - These 2 teams are rather interchangeable. Whichever is more dialed in will be 3rd, and the other will be 4th.
5. Cuyahoga Falls - I can't tell if the Black Tigers have an injury, or if they've been resting a different runner each week. If they're healthy, they might be the best bet to snag the 5th qualifying spot. If not them, then Perry. Louisville is another team to watch, but their 5th will make it hard for them to advance.

Individual Winner: Moore, Lake. He's hot right now, and Jackson's top 2 can concede the top spot without hurting their team's chances.


My picks for DI girls at GlenOak:
1. Jackson - Their depth is hard to ignore.
2. GlenOak - They could pull off something special on their home course, or they could be waiting for something even more special at Boardman.
3. Perry - The Panthers probably wish they could bottle up Saturday's performance that won them the Federal League championship, but I like where they're heading.
4. Louisville - The Leopards made a good run on this course at the County Meet. They could do it again.
The gap between the top 4 teams and everyone else is rather wide at this point. It would take a great effort from another team to knock out any of these 4 teams.

Individual Winner: Bartolone, Perry

Girls D3

Medina(3)

Gilmour welcome back to Medina Lancers
Independence they will two good runners up front..which should mean a lot
Elyria Catholic. No front runners needed..they have no liabilities
Kirtland they do have two big numbers in the back...I don’t know..

Trumbull

McDonald come on who else but McDonald ...in a landslide
Maplewood they should be an easy runner-up
Badger if they can run like they did before Boardman
Berkshire the Badgers ran well at CVC ....and because they have history

Glen Oak

St Thomas they have a few horses up front and that should be enough..if they are healthy or dnf

Black River Heath up front could lead them to the district title

I’m picking East Palestine then Rootstown

North Coast league results are on runner's edge race timing. Is Rulison from Beaumont hurt? I see she didn't run and was beat by her 2 teammates last time out.

Trumbull Boys DII:
Salem seems to be peaking at the right time for the District just like last year when they topped Poland. Poland looks strong however and is probably the favorite. South Range is the dark horse here. Are they good enough to pull the upset? As you said previously, Berkshire should also be in the mix. Here's hoping that Salem doesn't peak to soon and has a better showing at regional this year and moves onto the state meet. I know they were very disappointed last year.

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.
