It would be cool to have the seating closer to the field.
I'm sure the cost to relocate the track would be pretty high though...

You are right 72! If football is your flagship product, then everyone in the company need to make sacrifices and pitch in to make it successful. Like a kicker. If the football team (your flagship/money maker) needs a kicker. The soccer coach should be more then willing to help out his money maker (football) and letting his players kick for the football team. If a player want to do so.
Sorry for the rant. That issue still dumbfounds me.

T&F is arguably the most successful sport at LHS. I think they deserve a great facility. The cost to replicate that elsewhere would be pretty prohibitive.

In a perfect world I'd love it. But I also think we're prettty lucky the community backed the current vision a little over 15 years ago and we're not stuck like Gallipolis trying to raise money.

I fully understand your position. I would point out that a reasonable alternative exsts. Its at the middle school. Now I'm going to ask a pointed question. Not to slight T&F and soccer but how many people attend these events? And I wonder how much of the total sports revenue is generated by football. Just saying.......

Remove the track and install box field seats except from behind the team bench area. From the 35 yard line to the end zone! Remember football is the cash cow especially when we have a winning program! D&C you should have a breakdown on the revenue generated by all varsity sports!

Track at Logan might be the number three money maker. When we have a baseball game and a track meet at the sametime there will always be more at the track.

The middle school has a nice facility - although I'm not sure what effect the new Green Elementary has had on it. I know the old discus pit was down in that foot print.

But if you consolidate all T&F activities back into one venue you have scheduling and number issues between MS and HS programs. Remember - T&F is a numbers sport and trying to cram FOUR (MS boys and girls, HS boys and girls) huge teams into one venue causes a lot of problems.

Finally, one of the big advantages of the new HS is having virtually every Varsity venue onsite - I mean Cross Country is the "trip" having to go over to the golf course! Busing T&F athletes over to the middle school for practice everyday would be added cost as well (they used to bus out to the MS from the hilltop).


As to your revenue question, at this point, your argument is only relevant if a change at the Stadium would result in added revenue. The venue is bought and paid for. Football DEFINITELY is the biggest money maker by a distance. But unless you're going to INCREASE revenue by making a change, you're going to spend a lot of money without a corresponding revenue increase. Not sure that is helpful.



FWIW - I advocated a bleacher system that could sit over the track during football season but could roll behind the track for the winter and fall (Massillon has a system like this, although I think the front of their stands are just removed). I do believe the district looked into it, but decided it is cost prohibitive.

I like that they are moving north to play teams instead of south. A league invite is being cultivated.

I ask this question to the people that would know at least once a week and we literally have nothing coming. It would be at least another year before we get a look unless something unexpected happens.

I agree with KD.

Don't expect anything on the new league front is eminent. I would imagine at least two football seasons as an independent barring a surprising turn.

Logan it's basically Mid State League unless the ECOL dies. That would leave Marietta, Zanesville, Logan, and Warren with no league.

A part of me wonders if Dover and New Philly leave the ECOL, do Logan and Warren get an invite to try to replace them, assuming Logan at the time doesn't have any offers from the MSL or any other leagues. Even if Warren only accepted, that's still a decent 7 team league and I'm sure football can be scheduled to where teams would only have to visit Washington County once a year.

Dover and New Philadelphia will probably join a league with Louisville. Probably with schools like Wooster

Another possibility is to have a league of Athens, Logan, Marietta, Warren, and Zanesville if the ECOL dies, and someone can convince Athens to leave the TVC (probably will never happen). Sending an invite to either or both of the Parkersburg schools wouldn't hurt, but considering that they desire to play AAA schools based on WV classifications and Logan would be the only AAA school on their conference schedule, I doubt they would accept, but they'd probably still play Marietta and Warren for a decent gate and short trips.

That league would have 4 AAA teams. Ive always thought that league should happen. Be a great all sports league but yeah I don't think Parkersburg schools would want to be in a league of small schools . Zanesville will likely go to a league around Columbus

We could even have Athens vs Parkersburg Hockey

The AAA classification on the OHSAA site is different from the classification from WV. To be AAA, your total enrollment (9-12 both Boys and Girls) is 933+ students. Zanesville was on the border if they were included.

http://www.wvssac.org/classificiations/

AAA: 933+
AA: 460-932
A: 0-459

http://www.newsandsentinel.com/sports/l ... s-rivalry/

"It can be a drain financially. The rules give us a bit of flexibility with being able to schedule. But you have to look at the Ohio schools. It did a reclassification and teams like Marietta and Warren dropped to a AA value even though their numbers stayed the same. Therefore, the number of points available to anyone on their schedule dropped."

And if money or costs ever because an issue down the road for the Parkersburg schools, a league like that could be an option as Parkersburg to Logan or Zanesville would be around an hour and a half by bus where in OVAC-TRAC for South, it's almost 2 hours just to the closest conference member so travel would go down significantly along with costs, gates would probably go up with Warren and Marietta just across the river, Athens not too far away, and I'm sure Logan would also travel well (not too sure on Zanesville) and then they could try to schedule up non-conference (play AAA teams in either the MSAC or TRAC). Heck, duel league could even be an option if scheduling is be done right and both leagues are 5-6 teams.
