Kids have to decide at some point which sport they want to participate in and focus on one per season otherwise it's unfair to their team mates. It's also another example of maybe having to many sports. The NDHSAA can't figure out why the the class "B" boys basketball tournament has lower attendance today then 25 years ago when the answer is simple. Back then each school maybe offered 4 sports instead of 8 and it was easier to support them. Now everyone is spread so thin that choices of which sport do I want to support becomes an issue...

The only other options would be to make the XC season shorter (to avoid football games on Saturdays, but possibly interfering with volleyball tournaments for any female athletes that may double-up; I have no clue how common that is.), or move the meet to a different day of the week.
Life is about tough choices, and the NDHSAA can only do so much. Unfortunate set of circumstances either way.
