State cross country meet postponed due to flooding at National Trail Raceway


Galion’s Braxton Tate, Northmor girls will run Nov. 10

HEBRON — Galion’s Braxton Tate will have to wait another week to prepare for the state high school cross country meet.

The Ohio High School Athletic Association has postponed Saturday’s state cross country tournament and is moving the championships to Saturday, Nov. 10, due to flooding 0n the course at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, executive director Jerry Snodgrass has announced.

“While I wholeheartedly understand the impact this move has for all those involved in the event, this is the best solution for the safety and well-being of our participating student-athletes,” Snodgrass said. “National Trail Raceway has closed the course due to flooding with the on-going rain we have had in central Ohio, so the conditions will hopefully be much better by next weekend.”

The schedule for the championships will be as follows:

Saturday, Nov. 10,

National Trail Raceway, Hebron

11:00 a.m. – Boys Division III

11:45 a.m. – Boys Division II

12:30 p.m. – Boys Division I

1:30 p.m. – Girls Division III

2:15 p.m. – Girls Division II

3:00 p.m. – Girls Division I
