Great wrestling and a very smooth tournament ran by Hilton, out by 7:30. Why did the A's run so late???

Totally agree with that post. Tournament ran flawlessly. I think A's ran late because they did finals on one mat. AA's did 1st-6th place at the same time....thank god. We were home by 7:30 with dinner picked up on the way.

A's used 3 mats, how many mats did AA's use?

Single A's was really not done well. It was more like a weekend youth tourney than Sectionals. No access to the cafeteria, no where to sit, one really questionable ref, and then they rolled up the 3rd mat early...made for a very frustrating day

Three Mats. But that is all they could use and still keep the 45 minute mandatory wait.

Lets just say A was run Horrible. Finals were supposed to start st 430 and never started until after 730. Never ended until 10 pm. Absolutely ridiculous!! Would love it back at Gates

I like the 1 mat idea. Just have to hit your times leading up to it or it can get late quick. Most of been good wrestling lots of big names going at it.

The duo sectional events at Gates were awesome when your sectional class was performing on the mats right in front of the bleachers. It was extremely frustrating for spectators when the wrestlers they are were there to support were on the far side with limited seating and trying to watch three deep from the second story rail. It's a year ending acclimation of a ton of hard work, and all athletes deserve to be seen. The parents that make sacrifices to be at these events and endure the fan grind should at least have a good view of their child at sectionals. I'd rather get stuck in a gym a few more hours and be able to comfortably get a good view of my kid at sectionals than have an unpleasant spectating experience. Some of these seniors are wrestling their last match ever, and I think it's paramount that they can be spectated properly.

We had to run 2 mats from 3 to allow for the :45 min rule between matches.

When the tournament moved from a two day to a one day we were only allowed 1 entry per weight.

They will probably need to go back to a two day format when the brackets for 11 team is more than 12 per weight class.
