Why does Ohio Require Nine Athletes for a Track & Field Team - When other States Only Require One?
At the January Ohio Association of Track and Cross Country Coaches annual track and field clinic a coach inquired during the OATCCC General Membership Meeting if the Ohio High School Athletic Association requirement to have nine athletes on the track & field was the same as the National Federation of High School Associations. (The OHSAA says you need nine athletes for them to count that school as having a Track & Field program). An Ohio OATCCC Districts Representative said it was the same. His answer was wrong.
Is the OHSAA Following Their Mission Statement and Bylaws?
Cross Country is the only sport where the OHSAA add both the boys and girls enrollment of the bottom three grades of a school and divide by 2 to determine a school divisional assignment. All other OHSAA sports use single gender enrollment to determine a sport divisional assignment. Is this FAIR and EQUITABLE? Does this go against BYLAW 2-1-1?
