Lead mechanic for counts

By Dennis Morris

The 2013-15 Preseason Mechanics Guide published by Referee Magazine, p.14, “Lead Counts,” it states that the LEAD is to signal a closely guarded count. I have been taught NOT to give closely guarded count as the LEAD. What does OHSAA want?

Disregard the directive on pg 14. The trail or center will be responsible for all closely guarded counts. The Lead will have no responsibility for closely guarded counts.
