    4 divisions for track?

    Ideally, if we go to 4 divisions, it should be …. DI- top 10%, DII- next 30%, DIII- next 30%, and DIV- smallest 30%. Essentially, this would keep the smallest 2 divisions the same because of the schools that don’t field 9 athletes at districts. Keep in mind, there are at about 100 schools that...

    Division 3 Region 10 Regional Site Change

    I will agree, Massillon Perry can make some improvements, but it probably is the best regional site for the athletes that has held this region in the past 30 years. Moving the throwing area closer to the track did make things more crowded, but was fantastic for those kids and most coaches. Using...

    Question: Northeast D3 Regional

    I will agree, Massillon Perry can make some improvements, but it probably is the best regional site for the athletes that has held this region in the past 30 years. Moving the throwing area closer to the track did make things more crowded, but was fantastic for those kids and most coaches...

    Alternates for Relays get in to the Regional and State Meets

    I have never got reimbursed by our school..... Our Booster Club has helped out a couple times but usually it's on the coach(es).

    Alternates for Relays get in to the Regional and State Meets

    This is really good news and shows some foresight for the OHSAA. I have had several kids participate and earn medals at both the Regional and State Meets who had to pay to get in.

    Alternates for Relays get in to the Regional and State Meets

    From Dustine Ware Sports Administrator ALTERNATES = FREE ENTRY I was recently made aware that during the transition into my hire with the OHSAA, there was an ‘oversite’ regarding the decision to allow alternates FREE ENTRY into the Regional & State Meets. This has since been brought to the...

    Distict Disparity

    Again, if the Districts were seeded by the marks of the 4 x 800 relays then that event could be balanced...... then the best 6 Shot putters (or 110 hurdlers or high jumpers) could then be in the Same District. The question is, what event(s) do you seed? "Power rank" all the teams? There is...

    State Meet Schedule

    Also, Probably due to the State Meet Facility hosting all three divisions instead of just hosting one field event for each gender. At the state meet, they have 3 Shot Puts, Discus', HJ, LJ and PV for each gender AND want to be completed with each division prior to the conclusion of the finals...

    Printed Results off Milesplit?

    I can not seem to be able to gather printed results off the milesplit. the copies all have the milespite headers/footers and all the backround info with makes it 10+ more pages and the print is very small. Just another adjustment that we will have to deal with???? Any suggestions will help.

    Milesplit District Entries

    I was able to type in a mark for some kids who only participated in dual meets or Hand-timed marks that were not turned in to Milesplit.

    Why You Can't Always Trust What You Read - The Limits of MileSplit & AthleticNet Databases

    Good point alter.... Our girls had an 8 pounder for the first dual... went 30' and 28"10.... not sure where they got it as I took all of our old ones to scrap medal about 5 years ago. May have been left from another school last year.... we don't weigh at duals. after the meet we weighed them...

    Why You Can't Always Trust What You Read - The Limits of MileSplit & AthleticNet Databases

    I'm sure I will be in the minority here, but for years, I felt that at the district level, everyone should enter at NT (no time) or no mark. Especially since the top 8 marks make the final in the events with flights or semis in the laned running events. Some coaches were entering suspicious...

    Lack of field event finals

    At our Invite.... the temp was in the 30's and was spitting snow, the Coaches (at the coaches meeting) decided to go to 4 attempts in the throws and LJ (open pit) just so the kids/officials would not be exposed as long. A good choice IMO. We did measure every attempt. Probably could have...

    What is the status of a 4th Division for CC/Track?

    Some good points… most have been addressed by the oatccc. #1 and 2: yes, combined two divisions when/where you can. It has been done before. Orville districts in 1999,2000. D2 and D3 at the same site at the same time. Was a great meet. Only lull was 4 3200s in a row, bit did not need to move...

    What is the status of a 4th Division for CC/Track?

    Also, it would put track on par with other sports. For instance, the other traditional spring sports, (baseball/softball) have 4 divisions with less total numbers participating and less schools offering the sport. BTW. Girls track and field is #1 in total participants for girls in any sport...

    What is the status of a 4th Division for CC/Track?

    Exactly Mr. Slipperry. One of the primary reasons why the “at large” qualifiers finally was allowed was because it did not add any time to the schedule, since JO has 9.lanes…

    What is the status of a 4th Division for CC/Track?

    If they ever go with 4 divisions with 25% size-wise in each division… I would soon propose that the top 10% would be D1 (about 80 schools); the 30% in each of the other divisions (240 school in each). They should probably first recognize teams with less than 9 athletes at the district meet to...

    Does School Size Matter?

    Personally, I don’t think size is the “only thing” or maybe even the “biggest thing” to determine success, but it is very important. Two points. #1. If Canton McKinley (one of the 20 most populated) had the current Mason coach, or Woodridge coach, or St. X, minster, east canton, etc…who are...

    State Meet

    Minerva was in box 26…,pretty far inside there. I think 300 meters was enough for them, but racing close to even splits is their race plan. BTW the Salem girls may have had the best race…. For them. And the were even farther inside than Minerva. Both of these schools are in the same...
