State cross country championships postponed due to flooding

The state cross country championships scheduled for Saturday at National Trail Raceway in Hebron have been postponed to Saturday, Nov. 10, due to ‘flooding conditions on the course,’ the Ohio High School Athletic Association 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,” OHSAA Executive Director Jerry Snodgrass said in a release. “National Trail Raceway has closed the course due to flooding with the ongoing rain we have had in central Ohio, so the conditions will hopefully be much better by next weekend.”

The schedule for the championships Nov. 10 at National Trail Raceway will be:

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
