COLUMBUS — The Ohio High School Athletic Association has postponed Saturday’s state cross country championship races, and is moving the championships to Saturday, Nov. 10, because of flooding conditions on 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 next Saturday will be as follows:

11 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 p.m.: Girls Division I

Area athletes competing includes Norwalk’s Robert Vazquez in the Div. I boys race, and St. Paul’s Noah Avendano in the Div. III boys race. The Edison boys team and Abby Lesniak will represent the Chargers in the Div. II races, while the New London boys and girls teams will each compete in the Div. III races.
