@zen this is one of the more interesting posts I have seen on here, as it touches on two of my favorite topics: open enrollment and small, rural schools. Let me start off by saying I am actually ok with open enrollment, and feel that people should send their kids where they want to send them, provided everything is on the up and up. I know very little about the academic reputations of any of these schools, nor do I know what kind of programs (music, art, theater, etc) are offered at any of the schools. I’m sure we will never know, but I wonder what factors, other than school size, drove the Jaworski’s to make their decision. In terms of success and tradition of the track program, I feel either Edgar or Stratford would have made more sense. West did win one state title in track in '95 with the two-woman wrecking crew of Brenda Felver and Amanda Lloyd, but that was when I was in HS…ancient history. There can be no complaints as it has certainly worked out well for Brooke, but the small-school fan inside of me would have loved to see her ripping it up for Stratford, Edgar, or the Athens Bluejays! In a way it would have been reminiscent of Meghan Rennhack putting up ridiculous times for Dodgeland in D3.
