VERMILION- The coaching staff released the 2020 cross country schedule last week after the official announcement that the OHSAA will move forward with the fall cross country season. The schedule released is a tentative schedule that may be adjusted as regulations change according to local health departments.
The 2020 season is highlighted with two (2) home meets including the annual Obenour XC Invitational set to take place on the first weekend in October and the newly addition to the Lake Erie XC Challenge in September.
The Lake Erie XC Challenge is a tri-meet challenge featuring teams from Cuyahoga, Lorain, and Erie counties. The meet will be a two day event on the Vermilion HS campus featuring middle school on Thursday, September 3rd and the high school teams competing on Saturday, September 5th. The meet format includes a team from each county competing in one of the 12 races taking place. The county that wins the most tri-races will be the winning county.
Tiffin will be a home away from home this year for the Sailors as they could compete on the Hedges-Boyer course up to three times this year including the Carnival, SBC Championships, and the Regional Championships.
