Re: NAQT eligibility changes for 2018-19

Announcing a change such as this after the season has started should mean that such change would not be effective until the start of the following competition year. It sounds like a solution to a problem no one has. I look forward to seeing more information on why this is deemed necessary as well as...

Re: 2018 SSNCT Pre-Nats Discussion

Ohio will be represented by 24 teams (possibly 27 if the standbys clear) in the public class and 7 in the open. Once again, the line is led by Ottawa Hills, but this time they will have company. Cloverleaf, which lost enough enrollment to get under the bar this year, went 5-5 at last year's HSNCT an...
