For those of you in Ohio

I was at a girls Varsity game (in Ohio) the other night and noticed that there were only 2 officials. I know that the boys have 3 in V games and was curious as to if the third official didn't show up or if this was a typical occurrance in girls games.

Virtually every conference around the Cleveland area is three person for both Boys and Girls Varsity. There is even talk that some Boys JV will be shifting to three person.

official must not of showed. One of the JV officials should of stayed and worked the game.
In Ohio I think all varsity games, should be 3 man crews.
Some of the schools on central ohio are going 3 man for JV.

If a varsity official is a no show and there is no sub from the assignor, its at the discretion of the two head coaches whether a JV official is used or not. If neither JV official has their Class 1 license and/or the coaches feel they would be better off without either of them, the game will be a two man game.

Depending on the location / conference, some GV assignments are still 2-official in Ohio.

I am pretty sure it is only discressionary if JV officials are not Class I - the coaches do not have the authority to not use a class I official if avaialble at that time.
The only other time a choice can be made is if there is an official in the stands or near by (dad) they must be mutually acceptable to the coaches.

that is from a few years ago it may have changed I try not to think of such things.

Rich,
In WI do the coaches have a say in which officials are selected for post-season?

There is one league in Southwest Ohio that uses 2-man for girls that I know of. It's a small school conference north of Dayton. It has 13 schools and some of them are an hour apart.

There are also some in Southeastern OH that use 2 for GV due to availablity of officials.
Several of the leagues around Columbus have gone to 3 person crews for a Frosh/JV doubleheader depending on the school.
There are also some mentoring crews which follow the Varsity crew's schedule for the league. A great way to train new officials and have a stable of available officials ready.

There are a number of conferences and leagues in Ohio that do not use three officials for girls' varsity games, and the most common reason is $$$$$$$.

Seven dollars doesn't seem like a very good reason?

The coaches rate the officials during the season, but I see no correlation between assignments and ratings. The assignments all come from the state office and I do not know if the coaches have any say in who they get.
