Northwest Ohio Realignment

Might be a little harsh on PC.

Dead on with Vermilion and Willard.
Well the league is trash because Port Clinton has been pretty historically mediocre. With exception to that 3 year run, they've been a consistent 4-6 or 5-5 team for the last few decades.

So you have 2 solid programs (Huron & Edison) and 3 games a school like Oak Harbor should never expect to lose. SBC should just merge the two bigger divisions into a 10/8 format for football...

Division A
Bellevue
Clyde
Tiffin Columbian
Norwalk
Perkins
Sandusky
Edison
Port Clinton
Vermilion
Huron

Division B
Willard
Margaretta
Hopewell Loudon
Tiffin Calvert
Lakota
Gibsonburg
Fremont St Joe
Woodmore

Why doesn't the River Division just break away and start a new conference with Woodmore and the current teams???

What benefit does that give them? Being with all the schools greatly benefits the River schools with sports others don’t have plus the league tournaments are valuable to those programs.

Stability of having their own conference. The River schools don't care about tennis, swim, lacrosse. They don't have those sports anyway.

I think the River would greatly benefit from having their own conference.

What league tournaments are you referring to?

Ok. Never mind. You are clearly in the dark. Assumed you had solid rationale.

Why do you think you know more about what is best for them than they do?
It’s simply my opinion. But their division is about to implode lol. Can almost guarantee principals and AD’s at these schools are getting a backup plan in place just in case.

Maybe it's been mentioned. I thought maybe someone here can let me know if what I was told is correct. They said Northview's incoming class will be larger than the graduating class and that those schools are packed to the gills. I looked at Eitel and he lists Northview D2 and Southview D3. I recall Southview being D2 at one time.

These schools growing, shrinking, building new or adding space?

Southview actually got to D1 at one point.

We used to scrimmage them every year and I remember playing them in the D2 playoffs in 2003, then a few years later, like 08? 09? We dropped to D3, they had gotten to D1, and the scrimmages stopped.

Keep in mind that the super D1 and adding D7 adjusted everyone down. SV would still comfortably be D2 in the old 6 division format.

Sorry Conference, not division. Yes, they are the most stable. Which is why I would believe it is in their best interest to "separate".
I don’t think it’s in their best interest because they are able to partake in some club sports they wouldn’t be able to partake in on their own - but it may very well come about that they have to break away.

Northview and Southview were roughly the same size up until the late 00's when Sylvania opened up enrollment internally. Everyone and their brother wanted into Northview when that happened (a whole different discussion as to why), which cause Southview to decrease by the sliding scale of that district. Now, with all of the construction on the western edge of the Township, think around Pacesetter Park area, they have had to redistrict again for the second time in about 5 years, in order to better balance enrollment. That whole new growth is hitting Highland and Central Trail, which are almost at capacity already, so things have been shifted considerably by understanding that the younger classes are growing considerably in one geographic area.

If they hadn't done so, McCord would be able 800 students larger than either of the other middle schools with the old 00s district lines, along with the two elementaries mentioned above being nearly double the size of any of the others. From what I've been told, they expect numbers to fall more in line with each other in the next 4-5 years as the re-balanced elementary school and middle school classes hit high school, while the increase in families is expected to net an increase of around 150-200 students from Northview's current total enrollment numbers when it's all said and done (while bumping Southview up by 250-300). Northview will always be between 150-300 more students just based on the capacity of the building...but those capacities may change within the next few years too if some conversations bear out in School Board meetings and Community drives.

Both schools are falling apart in some areas...I've heard they may be close to the State's threshold for capital reinvestment. Another thing thrown around has been Sylvania developing a plan to utilize the Lourdes campus as an educational center for the district should they no longer operate in their current state.

Blow up both schools and build one high school school. They would be roughly the size of Mentor (900-1000 boys) which would be awesome from sports standpoint. Southview was DI in 2011. I believe that was the last time.

Thanks. I did the math a couple years back and combining both put them around 950ish so they have dropped a bit as schools obviously fluctuate a bit.

I have a friend who lives in Plano, TX which is a suburb of Dallas. They purposely stay away from splitting schools up for football. I believe Plano, Plano East, and Plano West all have around 3500 students. Being only 40 higher than Whitmer I think they could save on resources as well. Just me and I'm obviously a football guy.

Where is rmolin?

In these days of scarce educational funding, one school would be cheaper as well....economy of scale.

I live in Texas and I can confirm that football is a serious consideration when deciding on the number of high schools for a district, maybe the first consideration. Plano has huge schools, but they’re terrible at football lately. Better examples would be Allen and North Shore, both with more than 500 boys per grade and multiple campuses for one high school.

Those schools in Texas would be like if Dublin or Olentangy went with one school. It would be huge, but the talent on one team in pretty much every sport would be insane.

Since the TRAC and the NLL will be dissolving or changing I thought maybe it would be fund to have an all-TRAC/TCL and all-NLL team since 2000. Football overall in Ohio has dropped off a bit in recent years and NWOhio is no exception but some really good teams and talent ran through both leagues since 2000. The TCL/TRAC has had 4 state championships since then and the NLL has had one. Obviously Whitmer made the big boy division Final 4 three years in a row and lost in the state finals in 2012. Southview also lost in the D2 state finals in 1999. When I think of coaches that helped change the landscape of Toledo area football for the better and away from strict run offenses I think of Jim Mayzes (Southview), Cliff Hite (Findlay), Rick Rios (Rogers) and Joe Palka (Whitmer).

You’re right, it is amazing to watch. I follow North Shore closely as I live and work in the community and they have multiple D1 scholarship players every year. I believe they have five active NFL players with more surely to come with the last few years being some of the best talent they’ve had. Even with all of this talent, it still doesn’t replace NW Ohio small school Friday night football for me. Having games streamed this year didn’t disappoint.

Not in my experience. Larger schools tend to spend more money per student. Part of that may be that larger schools are in urban areas, but more importantly I find that larger schools have more bloated bureaucracies.

Two smaller schools might have one principal each. If they merge, there tends to be one overall principal and then two-vice principals. Instead of one athletic director apiece, their is now one overall athletic director and two assistant AD's. Etc.
