And Waynesville up to D2.

Summit and CCD won’t be happy.

Couldn't agree more. OHSAA needs to fix this problem. There is way too much disparity in enrollments in the lower part of D-1 and the upper echelon. It could easily be fixed by eliminating the equal number of teams in each of the three divisions blueprint...and going to a smaller D-1 grouping....say 500 and up in D-1......and then split up D-2 and 3 with the remaining teams. D-2 and D-3 would have many more teams...but when you look at the fairness of competition....the differences in enrollments are much more logical than sending a 329 enrollment school like Bellbrook against schools with more than 3 times their enrollment. Same can be done with basketball and Volleyball. Both have much unfairness between the lower parts of D-1 and the huge D-1 schools.

SW DII is still loaded

Actually Rocky River is the smallest D1 team with 1 less girl than Bellbrook and 1 more than the largest D2 school, Tiffin Columbian. (Bellbrook is 2 more than the largest D2 school).And Bellbrook...who should be very good, is the smallest D-1 team in the state, missing by one person being a D-2 team.

If I'm not mistaken, the OHSAA basically takes the total number of schools playing soccer & divides by 3......in essence creating a roughly equal number of teams in each of the Divisions. At least, that appears to be how it has been done in the past. Thus there CAN be a disparity in total enrollment from the top schools (in number of students, IOW) in a given Division to the bottom few, near that cut-off point.

Post Script: Having checked the OHSAA Meetings Minutes from June 9th......that is how it was divided again this season. Thus.....

D1 = 328 female students from October 2021 / 173 teams

D2 = 191 to 327 students / 173 teams

D3 = 190 or less students / 174 teams

On the Boys side, each Division has 189 teams.
