Columbus DeSales or Coldwater? Which feat is more impressive?

After writing about Coldwater and its impressive string of three
straight regional final appearances this school year, it was brought to
my attention that Columbus DeSales has reached FOUR regional finals
during that same span. Now, I want to bring something else to your attention. Which is more impressive?


After writing about Coldwater and its impressive string of three straight regional final appearances this school year, it was brought to my attention that Columbus DeSales has reached FOUR regional finals during that same span.

Now, I want to bring something else to your attention.

Which is more impressive?

Coldwater is a public school.

DeSales is private.

Coldwater is rural.

DeSales is urban.

Coldwater is a small school

DeSales is a big one.

Does any of that matter?

Probably does to a lot of you. And I want to know why.

Which one do you think is more significant?

Please email me your responses to: efrantz@bucknuts.com.

My plan is to post your thoughts in a future issue of Ohio High Magazine and on the Huddle.

Both sides of  the argument will be represented, including the strongest points for each. Might post some not so strong ones as well. Usernames will be included.

Couple things you might want to know…

Coldwater went to the regional finals in football (D-IV), basketball (D-III) and baseball (D-III). The Cavs made the state Final Four in only baseball and play this weekend.

DeSales went to the D-II regional finals in boys soccer, football, basketball and baseball. They won all four regional titles. DeSales, which is 0-3 in state semifinals this school year, plays in the state baseball tournament this weekend as well.

Would a state title Saturday make it easier to pick the more monumental feat?

Here’s another nugget…

DeSales has 377 boys.

Coldwater has 369 students total (boys and girls).

DeSales has 11 kids that play two of the sports and none that play three.

Coldwater has 12 kids that play on at least two of the teams and FOUR that play on all three.

You’re on the clock.
