The problem with Minster's gym - as with many new gyms - is that the first row of bleachers is so far from the floor. Three-court gyms are nice for the extra practice area they provide, but they can definitely inhibit an intimate atmosphere.

The old Lima Senior gym on a Saturday afternoon with sunlight streaming in from the windows.

Why would 2 decent teams with 5 losses play each other and not each play a team that has 10 or so losses? I do not have all the brakets yet, they are only 3 miles apart as you know. Do they seed them, and 1 plays 12, 2 vs.11,etc? They sure do do that out here. They pit 15-5 teams with teams with many more losses, but only 3 teams get in from each league. Some body explain the seeding procedure to me? Thanks

It looks like Crestview, Wayne Trace, and DSJ got the top three seeds, and they all took byes. Not sure who got the fourth (Ottoville or FJ) but they went on the bracket on Crestview’s side. They took a slot where winning one game will get them a sectional championship rather than having to play a lesser team first but then having to contend with Crestview, WT, or DSJ.

The team with the 5th seed (apparently either Ottoville or FJ) had the same choice to make and decided to go against their neighbor rather than taking on one of the top three seeds.

If I’ve read this wrong I’m sure someone will correct me.

I cited ML as an example as a team that ‘has’ played exclusively zone through the years. Namely, the Jack Albers and Keith Westrick years. They don’t play the 2-3 any longer unless it’s a one-off gimmick or for an in-bounds play.
