Photo by Tracy Rollins - Ohio started its High School Cross Country championships 82 years ago in 1928. Only an elite group, composed of five individuals, has won three individual titles. The last was Vincent Fries from Div. III Attica Seneca East in 1994-95 and 1997. The last Div. I, three-time individual, champion was 22 years ago when George Nicholas of Dayton Meadowdale set his marks from 1978-80. This year, Zach Wills of Mason has the rare opportunity to join this elite club of runners. He is the two-time defending Div. I State Champion.

MileSplit has a huge database of performances nationwide that numbers in the tens of millions. We love to utilize this data to generate various rankings, virtual meets, and scoring systems. Many people feel that time-based cross country rankings are worthless. I would disagree with those people and feel it is a valuable tool when used in context. However, obviously is is hard to get an accurate picture by just looking at times with so many variations between courses. We are in the process of deriving a scoring system, the first step of which is to design a statistically sound rating system of thousands of courses nationwide.
