  • The Board was updated on the schedule and format of the OHSAA football playoffs and state championship games. Of note, all playoff games during the first four rounds will kick off at 7:00 p.m. Division I, II, III and VI games will be on Fridays. Division IV, V and VII games will be on Saturdays.

The OHSAA will determine the date and game-time assignments for the state championship games after the results of the state semifinal games are known on Nov. 23-24. 
  • By a 7-0 vote, the Board approved a proposal from the Ohio Association of Track and Cross Country Coaches (OATCCC) to add two at-large state qualifiers in each of the five field events. Last year, the OHSAA added two at-large state qualifiers in each of the running events.  
  • Since the Board’s last meeting, 35 member schools were penalized for committing infractions of OHSAA bylaws or sports regulations. The list of infractions and penalties is always included in the complete meeting minutes, but media members may request the list in advance from Tim Stried, OHSAA Director of Communications, at [email protected].
