Dear Coach,

The Boardman Athletic Department invites your school to participate in the 36th annual Spartan Cross Country Invitational. The 2021 date is Saturday, September 18. A contract and schedule are attached to this email and are linked on our website: SpartanInvite.com.

If you wish to participate, please print the contract, complete it, and return with payment by August 31.

Be sure to enter your rosters at baumspage.com during the August 16 – September 13 entry window. Entries are not confirmed until your roster is officially entered on Baumspage and payment has been received by the Boardman Boosters.

High school teams must compete in the division assigned them by the OHSAA and will not be permitted the option of changing divisions. If you are unsure of your division because of enrollment changes, please mark the division assigned for 2021-2022 and notify us before August 31 if there is a change. Your team will be assigned to run in its correct OHSAA assigned division.

If your school’s male and female teams split divisions, the lower division team may “run up” in the higher division to ease travel inconvenience. This will be the only exception to OHSAA assignments.

For out-of-state teams, classification for divisions in Ohio is determined by the average number of boys and girls enrolled in grades 9-10-11.


Late fees will be attached to all teams entered manually after 5 p.m. on September 13.

Please refer any questions to: Dave Pavlansky, Meet Director
Please remit payment and return contract by August 31, 2021.

On-time entry deadline is 5 p.m. Monday, September 13 at baumspage.com
