Why does Ohio Require Nine Athletes for a Track & Field Team - When other States Only Require One?

Written by Matt McGowan on 20 May 2016.

Congratulations to Warren JFK which won the OHSAA Boys Division III State Track
& Field Championship - Even though the OHSAA doesn't recognize the school as
having a track and field team since they only had 7 boys on their roster.
There are probably 90 boys Track & Field teams in Ohio with fewer than 9 boys
on their team and even though many score in the District Championships their
schools are not counted as having a team by the OHSAA

April 2016 RUNOHIO E-Newsletter

on 07 April 2016.

My first marathon was the Glass City Marathon which use to be held on Father's Day. As a freshman at Ohio Northern University I entered with a few of my track teammates. My longest run at the time was 12 miles, but was in shape from cross country and track and finished 20th in 2:51. The following year I ran 2:34ish, then I won on my third try a year later in 2:27:17 and after my senior year I finished second in 2:24:00.
