Over crowded; could only see 2 of the mats fully from the stands; have to step over numerous people just to get to and from your seat; very stressful environment for everyone in the house; and matches weren’t over until 8:00pm! -a 13-14 hour day for many of these kids and their families not to include their drives home.
Hanford obviously is not a good choice to host regionals. In addition, had it been organized better, the guys and gals who placed might have received the recognition they deserved when medals were handed out. Instead, everyone there had to choose whether to watch a finals match or celebrate all the kids who battled all day to place in a very tough region. We had kids wrestling and on the podium at the same time!
