As we approach over 500 wrestlers for this Sundays' middle school state when does a tournament become too big for one day? I bring this up since the last two years the middle school state has run very late into the night. Some weights will have 50+ wrestlers and others will be well into the 40's (I wish all the weights had that many). If the tourny was on a Saturday the time is less of an issue. I only ask the question just to get a feel if 14+ hours of wrestling is pushing it. It gets to be a logistics problem for the toruny directors since they have to arrange for table help, referee's, facilities maintenence, security, and of course match flow.
Food for thought.
Have it over two days?
Limit amount of entries from schools to two per weight class?
Have a middle school regionals?
I think Illinois has qualifiers, can somebody comfirm that?
