2. Who else is in on this? The entire Greater Catholic League Co-Ed Division of Alter, Carroll, Chaminade Julienne, Fenwick, Cincinnati Purcell Marian, Hamilton Badin and Cincinnati McNicholas.
3. Why is that an issue with the OHSAA? Changing the formula to claim additional school districts wouldn’t just affect GCL Co-Ed membership. Instead, it would affect the entire OHSAA membership, which represents more than 800-plus schools in the state.
4. What’s the OHSAA stance? Since it’s a voluntary membership and bylaws are implemented by unanimous vote, Judge Ruehlman “does not have the jurisdiction or authority to issue a TRO … of this unincorporated private association.”

5. Why is this important? Because the OHSAA’s competitive balance formula determines which divisions teams will be assigned for the postseason. The only sports that are affected by competitive balance are football, soccer, volleyball, basketball, softball and baseball.

7. Is this a win for the OHSAA? For now, but the issue is not settled. “We do not believe that courts can interfere with the internal affairs and application of the bylaws of the OHSAA, which were duly adopted by the member schools,” said attorney Joe Callow, a member of the legal team representing the OHSAA.
