Ohio High School Cross Country Coach

Ohio High School Cross Country Coach

 As an Ohio high school cross country coach I think cross country should be treated the same as the other twenty-two OHSAA sponsored sports where the team divisional assignment is determined by the single gender rule (2-1-1) not combined (boys and girls) enrollment.  As a cross country coach I would like to see the below bylaw be used to determine divisional assignments for 2014.

 

BYLAW 2 — CLASSIFICATION AND ORGANIZATION

Section 1 — Classification of Schools

 2-1-1 Boy’s classification shall be determined by the total number of boys enrolled in grades 9-10-11. Girl’s classification shall be determined by the total number of girls enrolled in grades 9-10-11.

 

On April 26, 2011 then president of the Ohio Track and Cross Country Coaches Association, Scott Dorne, wrote the OHSAA Board of Directors “It is quite clear though that our membership finds the idea of using a single divisional assignment for a school not in the best interest of the student-athletes and their coaches in the sport of cross country. Moving programs out of their natural division creates competitive advantages/disadvantages and does not solve the problem.”

 

__   I feel my team was negatively affected by the combined enrollment rule and feel cross

       country should be treated the same as the other 22 OHSAA sports (the combined

       enrollment caused teams to move down or up a division taking a spot  away from an athlete

       or my team and perhaps caused an imbalance in divisional  assignments)

 

___  I feel the combined enrollment rule had no impact on my team , but feel cross country

        should be treated the same as the other 22 OHSAA sports.

 

___  I feel my team benefited because of the combined enrollment rule but feel cross country

         should be treated the same as the other 22 OHSAA sports
